You can interact with each of them at this link:
I've added 'learn here' links to the related published Gdocs for each week to our classroom learning log (also a published Gdoc which is updated weekly). This allows anyone to browse the related materials, links, examples and help gifs/screencasts in a simplified version without all of the other distractions of the classroom site. If you're interested in any of the topics in each list, just click the 'learn here' link by the corresponding week.
With this method, you could build your entire course without ever having to bother with maintaining a site or blog (which for many teachers would be a blessing).
Hope you find something of interest in either the format or content!
One of the important functions that I expect AI will do for us in the near future is gather, prioritize, and present links and information during an important event (like our current local hidden pines fire event), and update/prioritize/personalize that information in realtime based on a number of parameters like changes in conditions, currency of information, number and frequency of visitors, available drone and webcam video feeds, evacuation routes and traffic, relevance and usefulness of comments, user current location, user device, etc. In the meantime, here's an example public Gdoc which I'm posting with a built-in submit-a-link form which is set to email me immediately when a response is submitted. I'm just posting this as an idea and to incorporate improvements based on your comments/suggestions :)
