Have you searched the list archives?  Blog-based archives have
been discussed before, and there is at least one user that uses
mhonarc for blogging.

Also, there is an example blog.mrc resource file in an appendix
section of the docs.

I had the brainwave that I might be able to adapt an email to html 
conversion program to do this instead.  So what I'd do is:

- email to 'blog(_at_)mydomain(_dot_)com', subject: <jobnumber><actual 
content: <Actual Content>
- we use IMAP and maildir's, so this would end up in blog's maildir 
folder as a single file.
- run mhonarc or similar at regular intervals to parse through the 
maildir and check for new messages.  If found:
    - extract job number from the subject (this will determine the html 
file to which message will be added)
    - append actual subject and content to the page.
    - ideally, delete the message when html conversion is complete.

Looks like procmail can be done to do all the pre-filtering and
to determine the proper mhonarc archive to add to.
