I think that the whole purpose of a blogger (when it isn’t being used as a posting mechanism to something more defined) should be to develop thoughts. Sure, not everyone is interested in that process, but i think a blogger is the perfect tool for people who are frequent posters on e/n sites of all shapes and sizes. In one day i went through quite a few thoughts on this page, and amongst them i struck on two quality posts which i developed for shafted. Perhaps this is the communications major in me talking, but i think each poster at Shafted should have their own blogger to doodle in, and for everyone to see. Bloggers would be like farm teams, and some posts would get called up to the big leagues while others held down the fort in Reading (or wherever your AAA teams plays). There is a niche for every artistic and asthetic impulse on the internet, but you can’t always cram them into the wrong ones.
