Tagging, for the most part. Plus I've grown accustomed to a blog
interface -- it almost makes the day begin, etc.


Sounds to me like, even if you're looking for some of the functionality of blog software, what you're taking about isn't a true blog, if you're going to be the only contributor. I just looked up the word and it's defined as a shared online journal. Or are we arguing semantics here?
