Exciting stuff everyone. @Darkle came up with concept of Blog Components on our Discord server. In short, it's inspired by @SychO Widgets Core extension. The idea is to separate all Blog elements into the Components and move them freely between Layout positions. @askvortsov explained how it should be done on technical side with some innovative solutions and @PascalBoschma basically gave his blessing with "I'm in" reply. Hype went above 9000.

You can find all stuff expected in Blog 1.0 extension here on our newly launched Trello board:
In next days we will try to make a deal with guys from V17 development (I hope @askvortsov will join them too), discuss what can and can't be done and how much it will cost. After we get a quote I will try to organize a funding pot and get it crowdfunded.
With everything planned for 1.0, Flarum Blog will become fantastic alternative to Wordpress and other CMS systems. Faster, lightweight, robust, expandable and beautiful. Just like Flarum 😍 Potential is huge, I'm sure other developers will see opportunity in all of this and jump on board too.
I invite you all to share your ideas here, come on our Discord server, follow us on Trello and let's get this train going.
