Somewhere in the CivicSpace or Drupal archives I said something to  
this effect more than a year ago. But I can't code modules ...  
sigh ... but yes, this is exactly what I've advocated for in the  
past. I honestly do not understand why there are distinctions between  
blog, story and page. I find them redundant.

For someone who is a publisher/designer and minor tinkerer of  
modules, I'd consolidate those three into just the blog node and make  
that as extensible or static as possible.
