+# Riak Recap Blog
+
+This is the repo for the [Riak Recap Blog](#). The Recap is a thrice-weekly emai, typically delivered each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, sent to the Riak Users Mailing List to keep them up-to-date on what's happening in and around the Riak Community. You can read more about why the Recap is written [here](http://www.themarkphillips.com/2010/07/17/Why-I-Write-the-Riak-Recap-Every-Day.html).
+
+Some developers and Riak fans wanted to read the Recaps without having to subscribe the mailing list (which is relatively high-volume). So, in the interest of expanding the community and pleasing more users, we started a blog that mirrors the content of the Recap emails.
+
+## What Else
+
+* Checkout the [Riak Wiki](wiki.basho.com) for more information on why you should be looking at Riak for your production applications
+* Subscribe to [The Riak Mailing List](http://lists.basho.com/mailman/listinfo/riak-users_lists.basho.com) to get involved with the Riak Community
+* Follow Basho on Twitter to stay up on all the best Riak developments
