I am assuming, worst case, that anyone who signs up here will probably be dropped from revleft. Maybe that won't happen, who knows?
Any information will be gratefully received.

Why don't you make blogspot? In that way you would be your own boss
So, any thoughts on functionality and desirability? Personally, I wouldn't be too opposed to something like a board where people could keep something like a personal thread or blog thread, and it might also be useful for users to be able to create a compilation of links to their more worthwhile posts and such, or for newer members to get to know our membership better. Maybe it could be a sub-forum of Chit Chat or something along those lines. Still, that depends on how many users think that this feature may be worth using. It's not necessarily a need, but would it be nice to have? In addition, it may be worth discussing what kind of subject-matter these blogs should consist of if they exist.
