A timely question!  We have quite a few articles that have gone up now;
the front page has a summary of recent updates; http://www.openmirage.org/

Some specific articles that may be of interest from the docs page:

- How Xen events work: http://openmirage.org/wiki/xen-events
- How Xen suspend/resume works: http://openmirage.org/wiki/xen-suspend
- Building custom disk backends: 
- A walkthrough building a Hello World Xen kernel: 

As for distilling these down to a Xen blog post, I'll defer to someone with a 
little more time than I have right now.  I like the thinking though :-)
