Perhaps in terms of an official presence on the fediverse, it would be
possible to set up an account that just pulls in all from the blog
posts.  Would mean that if I am say following debian.isurf.ca (which is
an example, I am on social.isurf.ca) then I can re-share official content.

You also raise a good point with regard to official pretense having a
tick on Facebook, perhaps the fediverse needs something like this too.

If I add a post to my own blog, this is picked up by friendi.ca as I am
following via rss,  this also means there is a link back to the original
