I think a lot of people will use it, if we can test it and make it
available to XO users.
As you may know we debated whether to implement the EduBlog tool
(http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Educational_Blogger_Project) as part of Write
or as a server side implementation.
I pushed for server side (as opposed to Sugar or Write) because it was
faster to market and I didn't see a good answer for the Teacher <->
Student interaction requirements without it. Just FYI on the history.
In short, many people would love to see Blogging directly from Write as
an activity on the XO.
Have you been able to make your customized Write w/blogging in to a .XO
If so, post that somewhere (our wiki is OK) and I'll ask people to try
it out ASAP.
If you need help making a .XO file, let us know and we'll get you
support on that.
Also, you should synch up with the Write maintainers (Marc and Martin
copied). Write is a derivative of AbiWord. If they can review the code
and they like the idea, this could become part of the official AbiWord.
They are about to release a new AbiWord so it may be too late for this
round but get the details to the lead guys and we can go from there.
I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions or need any
more info, help or collaborators.
Optionally, I'm interested to hear more about your experience with the
XO or any more info you have on yourself, your skills and your work.
One Blog per Child!
500K kids writing Blogs / 1K developers reading blogs and writing code
with those kids = one turbo charged project :-)

Hello my name is Zeke Dean, I have been developing a bloging client for
the past couple of months for the olpc based on the write activity. It
is a solid bloging client that supports many different blogs and I
believe it has a decent user interface. I would like to discuss if we
can work together as we are both trying to promote the benefits of
bloging for educational purposes.
