Should be an easy fix in the app. You probably set it up to get a notification when there was a blog posting, but Drew hasn't posted a new blog in a while, so you'll be getting a new blog post notification every time I push a Headline of the Week thread. Simple trigger to fix in the app, though, should only take you two minutes at most.
