Archive the content, stick it on SUCS history for 2014 “Dec ?? - Blog Archived” ?

It’s not actively used, like the forum, so I personally see no reason for it to continue to feature on the website.

In the event of someone wanting to start a blog, there’s nothing to stop them setting up a WP instance.

I'm also not sure how secure it all is (the other week I had found a validation function that was just returning true all the time), it's just more code that that needs going over and checking. I don't see the point of doing so when it's a dead feature.
