Blog posts that you can reasonably expect may be shared in places where context will not be known should start out by clarifying what the subject of the post is.

Rust is an example of doing this very well. Take a couple of release announcements, for example: https://blog.rust-lang.org/2015/05/15/Rust-1.0.html, https://blog.rust-lang.org/2019/05/23/Rust-1.35.0.html. Both clarify what Rust is in the first paragraph.
