I wanted to respond to the issue of all blogs looking the same.  I had this
battle and won (I'm in your camp btw).  The whole point of the blog site was
for faculty who didn't like the monochrome of Blackboard.  We came up with
somewhat of a compromise for people who were using the blogs as part of an
official college website, they needed to use a template that we created.

My argument was that a "looks-all-the-same" approach would scare away anyone
who had any desire to use it.
