Blog - Community Edition by aheadWorks
Works Like a Charm
Only issue I had was a default install issue just move the files from the default theme to my custom theme and everything was good to go (1 min fix) Incorporated my own RSS feed grabber and let the web do the work ;) Good job guys (not the flashiest thing in the world but it was free and gave a good base to customize on) Good Work AW!

On The Fence
I installed this extension a couple of months ago on a site that's going to have constant updates. It was easy to install and use, but there is definitely some functionality missing.
Commenter's can't subscribe to the comments. There is also no search functionality, meaning I would have to go and purchase another extension for that.
Another thing; I just found another extension that is paid, and uninstalled aw_blog. For some reason the site speed increased by approximately twice what it was.
However, one of the main issues for me is that the blog home page isn't polished enough. It looks more like an archives page than anything else.
If this extension was improved, I would be more than happy to pay $100 or so for it.

Has worked well over the last couple of years. Good admin interface, lots of parameters, regularly updated, couldn't ask for more from a free extension
Note: If you're not using default/default as your theme remember to move the layouts/aw_blog.xml file and templates/aw_blog folder to your current themes directory otherwise you will just see a blank page.

NEVER EVER INSTALL THIS EXTENSION
If you dare to install this extension you will be hardly able to remove it.
If you will try to uninstall it,
your magento backend will crash and they (aheadwork) will not have any clue or give any help to do it.
Read their forum

Quick heads up for anyone having problems installing this as I did for 5 mins...
I got this error on returning to the admin following an install:
"There has been an error processing your request"
Make sure that COMPILATION is DISABLED.

Great and Free
Got it working on 1.7.x, make sure to do a manual install if you are using custom theme.
I'm using the FREE version on two sites, one of them here: http://www.youneedshirts.com/blog/
Now I just need to look for a way to integrate "sharing" the post with social networks similar to the product listing on the site.
If anyone know, please share.

Very Nice Extension :)
I just want to remove the pager and sorting, which I am unable to remove from the aw_blog.xml.

I have just installed this theme and it broke my admin panel.
I had to uninstall it and reinstall the magento admin modules to solve the problem.
I have a clean magento 220.127.116.11
