A badge for the editing, or people who had their post chosen? "Gold Star
Blog Post" or something might be cool. 

Not sure voting is necessary - if someone is taking point on this, we
should empower them to run with it, IMHO. (And if there's 2+ excellent
posts, why limit things? Re-running all of Planet would be excessive,
but if we find N+1 great posts in a week and the authors are OK with
reposts, then cool by me.)
