Well, a *decent* blogger takes as little mental effort to use as
possible - it should make communicating what you've found almost as
easy as finding it. So a blogger might be decent software, but not
really a decent blogger.

That's why I didn't jump up & yell Zope (squishdot/yihaw/zwiki/etc),
- it's a great framework for blogging, if you happent to have invested
the time to grok Zope first. Although if the existing Zope blogging
products happen to do what you want, you don't have to know much, just
choose parameters (almost). And if an existing installation does what
you want (example, that's pretty decent.
