I do think that there is another reason to the decrease in OR blogging. There is definitely a trend where OR is being dissolved into data science (or analytics if you prefer) . For instance, INFORMS has become an analytics professional society in addition to its tradition role as an OR society. Another example of operations research seen as part of data science can be found in a recent Gartner report on Staf
As a result, there are less specialized OR blogs, but there is also more OR in general data science blogs. Here are two recent examples.
This is a great read about how to hire a data scientist. They use an optimization problem (variant of Stiegler diet) to evaluate candidates. They even cite IBM optimization product (CPLEX) as an example of relevant tool. I would really recommend that read, even if CPLEX wasn't cited!
This is an introduction to robust optimization by a visiting data scientist at yhat, a company that so far focused on predictive analytics in Python.
I also found these ones, less recent:
This discusses how to model and solve various OR problems on the cloud using Python.
These entries appearing in non OR blogs. I am pretty sure there are many more.
