FWIW, if blogging is built in - or some form of web publishing - it
should be something that doesn't necessarily rely on exposing an
always-on PHP server to the world.
That is, maybe not Wordpress but something like Jekyll that produces
plain static HTML pages. That content could be hosted from the box
itself, from a bucket on Amazon S3, a US$1/mo web host, and/or even
shipped around to content-addressable mirrors.
One way or another, the content could be assembled on the FB but hosted
elsewhere, accounting for issues of incoming traffic overwhelming a
residential cable modem or intermittent connectivity to the box in general.
