Blog hosting would violate fundamental Wikinews project guidelines regarding neutrality, style guidelines and verifiability. Thus, not a good fit for Wikinews, though I am sure if you contact the local communities, they would appreciate the suggestion. :) (Maybe Spanish Wikinews would appreciate it.) If it was a serious option, Wikinewsie.org is getting Icelandic hosting for our reporting journalism workspace to protect our reporters... I believe we already have a Wordpress install, so as a potential thematic organization, The Wikinewsie Group could be placed to assist. We chose Icelandic hosting for a variety of reasons that have been mentioned in previous security related discussions.
