I know org-blog. I also know blorg.

Based on my own experience, this is what I could say:

Pros for blorg:

1. really take power of org-mode -ie. one entry marked done is publishable. The
rest stays in place
2. really easy to use if you know org-mode
3. category support through org-mode tags
4. templates
5. rss/rdf/atom support AFAIK
6. done by a french guy :)


1. publishing done via another mode (does not use org-publish)
2. not enough templates/css supplied ;)

Pros of blorg:

1. really easy to use
2. use org-publish :)
3. no support for category and things like that
4. done by David :)


1. unfinished post are put into a separate directory (why not use TODO/DONE
system as blorg does?)
2. org-publish :) (hard to setup correctly)
3. almost no documentation/example of what can be done (css etc)

So my perfect (org based) blog engine would take the best of these two modes but 
I do not know how a "merge" could be made :)
