I can't say I'm extremely familiar with the wiki but I imagine there is a 
troubleshooting section? With possibly a FAQ? I think a link to the selected 
blogs page would be valuable in such a place along with a link on the wiki 

As blogs tend be general, linking specifically within wifi might not be 
appropriate but a link to the troubleshooting page within wifi that then 
allows you to choose internal or external sources of information sounds better 
and keeps the non-official documentation contained and a little more 
consolidated for all areas of troubleshooting. For actual wiki content this 
isn't a problem but it would allow for an actual troubleshooting index of wiki 
approved content as well.

I imagine linking directly, even if only to the selected blogs page, may 
require more maintenance down the track as online information is pretty fluid 
and relevance can change pretty quickly. If the site disappeared you'd have to 
modify more than one page to accommodate it. Having two primary links, faqs 
and troubleshooting, seems less confusing and easier to maintain to me.

Just a thought :)
