The lost art of embedding scripting languages

So, there are various bits of my dubious knowledge concerning the embedding of Ruby as a scripting language into a desktop Windows application that I might like to write down for the benefit of the world at large, should I ever get round to it. But where? Clearly I could set up a website with a suitable URL, but how does one do that these days? This LJ account seems somehow inappropriate, I suppose I could set up a weasel_on_windows (or some such thing one), but no-one really looks at LJ for lumps of code. A blog on Blogspot or similar? People seem to do that to some extent - indeed one of the few bits of useful information I found was a series of blog posts, but I have some rather more complex information, but then don't you have the problems with comment spam? Or what?
Also of course, as we all know, writing things about 'how to do X' inevitably invites the 'you don't want to do that, you want to do this, with Lua, on Linux' etc. response, which will piss me off when it happens. [And in particular, my fine, 'callbacks from the Ruby 1.9 VM which allow you to interrupt script execution from the same thread from your 14 year old MFC application' trick will inevitably garner the 'you shouldn't be using MFC, on Windows, in a single thread, yada yada' response, you know how these things go...
