I've seen the replies but, no one has addressed your issues with sql
free blogging..

In short, mysql isn't overkill.. it will make your life exponentially
easier. Install mysql, and use Wordpress (which is incredibly easy to
install, and very well documented) and you'll have a fairly
bulletproof blogging system for multiple users that will allow you to
focus on research and posting, rather than maintaining a less well
known and supported system.

BTW, I grew up in Nashville, and went to elementary school right
across the street from the main Vanderbilt quad, at USN. I've even
DJ'ed at WRVU! Go Commodores!
