Perhaps you might give those of us who don't know this open source program some description, beyond what I see by following your link.

It is a blogging program, a rather elegant one. Generally conforms to current good standards.

It is versatile enough that you can strip away various functions and use the others. I throw out the date/time stamp, for example, as I really just want to use it as a low-level CMS. It has very good searching.

On the other hand, it is well documented and easy to use, so if you want a blog, you can practically use it right out of the box (quite a few do, I have seen).

WordPress is the best known open source blog program with thousands of users. You will undoubtedly have visited WordPress driven sites and not realised it!
