We love Lubuntu! :) I'm currently filming a video/prepping a post on
Lubuntu PPC (and how freaking awesome it is!), and a few other things in

I wouldn't advise excluding/not working with other media outlets (not just
OMG! Ubuntu!) to help expand the reach of Lubuntu - after all the more
people who learn about Lubuntu the more people who will benefit from it,

I do love the idea of a Lubuntu-user themed blog though. It's something
that I, as a Lubuntu user, would certainly subscribe to :)

Fwiw, OMG! was lucky enough to play home to a dedicated Debian column for a
short while, manned by Debian gurus Raphael Hertzog & Adnan Hodzic.
 Perhaps once Lubuntu! finds it's feet, we could work together to do
something similar; maybe publish a weekly Lubuntu-news roundup on OMG!
Ubuntu! with links back to WOW! Luuntu! etc?
