I went to begin implementing user blogs when I realised it's already there, just in a less accessible way.

Basically the only difference between a forum and a blog is that in a blog, you can read the post before you click the link to that post. A blog with comments is just a forum, in essence.

So all we have to do is tweak the search system to provide essentially what a blog would provide.

Now, if you go to your profile: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=282 you can view your blog. It's just a different way of viewing your posts in the Development Blogs board basically. If you've ever added a development blog post to a game it will appear there, or you can make orphaned individual posts straight to the dev blogs board.

That way your "blog" content appears in a blogroll.

Any thoughts on how this could be done better?

Just occurred to me nobody has ever, ever used this system. Yay!

Too complicated, unaware, or too messy?

All of the above.

What was the problem that user blogs was trying to solve?

Personally I already have several blogs I (loosely) maintain that totally aren't in my signature, nope never!

So it wasn't that I thought the system was bad it was just kinda redundant with blogger around.
