I’m glad you mentioned blogs.  LiveJournal faced a similar issue, and 
they decided to keep it together, as far as I can recall.  They decided 
to try to use expressions that are understandable for both sides — and 
while this is easy on an interface, it’s by far not as obvious in the 
FAQs, which are, just like Wikipedia articles, long and made out of 
complete sentences.
