I'd suggest to use a file in a repo that we can easily edit, like last
year's https://github.com/perl6/mu/tree/master/misc/perl6advent-2009/

Possible topics of interest (two stars mark those topics that I'd write
about myself, though certainly not all of them, and I'm happy to
delegate to others):

** MAIN and USAGE subs
* laziness (+ perhaps list iteration model)
* series operator
* explaining one or more Perl 6 solutions on rosettacode
** lexical subs and importing/exporting
* is everything a reference?
** Z and X meta operators (not covered in
http://perl6advent.wordpress.com/2009/12/05/day-5-metaoperator/ )
** basic parsing: what is a term, what is an operator? why is the
distinction import?
** meta object protocol
* the Perl 6 community
* infrastructure (what editors/IDEs are good for Perl 6 hacking/have
syntax hilighting, tools used for hacking and presentations etc.)
