I wonder if the community would find it appropriate if I ask a question like


Is this or that known? It would be interesting for this and that reason. For details see our blog "blah" where we ask for answers as well.


The main problem I have with posting it here is that I am less interested in just having an answer, but more in pointing people to the blog post.

If I follow http://blog.stackoverflow.com/2011/07/its-ok-to-ask-and-answer-your-own-questions/, then I feel like it's totally okay posting the problem and the blog post directing towards an answer. I will write a follow-up meta question about that...

Thanks, Christian

    $\begingroup$ If the purpose is mainly to get more people to see the blog, then I don't feel it would be appropriate here. On the other hand, if it is really to get an answer then not linking the blog would seem wrong (as the comments on the blog might contain information an answerer might want). $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 15, 2013 at 8:52
