# the Brilliant Blog

Until not too long ago, mathematical articles were posted on the Brilliant Blog. Those articles have been moved to the Practice section of this site, which is definitely a good thing, as it keeps things organized. If I would click a link to a former blog post, I'm redirected to the concerned topic in the Practice section, which is how it should be. However, on several locations on this website (in the footer, here, and here), there is a link to the blog homepage (blog.brilliant.org), which redirects me to brilliant.org (which could lead to confusion). I would like to suggest to:

• remove those links that do not link to the blog, as there isn't any, or
• reopen your blog! There are many things to inform the community about (new features, cool problems, new techniques) which you currently do through the discussions section, while a blog might be a better fit, especially for the audience that does not have a Brilliant.org account just yet.

Thanks! We've removed the blog from some of the locations that you pointed out.

In the future, we think it will likely be more convenient for the community to access posts through our Practice and Discussion sections. For posts covering mathematical techniques, we organize the posts in the Practice section by category in addition to publishing them to Discussions. People without accounts can access these articles without signing up, and can also view the Discussions without signing up.
