in thread Perl Blog Code

I only had a very quick look at these frameworks, but my impression (I may be wrong) is that these things are powerful but relatively complicated to get started, so that a ligher, maybe more specialized, solution might be easier to implement. But I do not have the experience to suggest something in particular.

    Dancer is very simple to use, I recommend it.

    Have a look at Gabor's video: Building a blog engine using Perl Dancer

    While it gives a nice introduction to Dancer I consider the blog-part kind of "cheating" ;-)

    In reality it's user management and authentication which makes blogs and forums complicated...

    Just automatically updating a webpage from user-input can be easily done with a simple CGI.

    Frameworks by themselves are easy to use, it's the "blog" thing what is really complicated. One has to implement not just "pages" to create, edit and comment, but also user registration, access rights, CAPTCHA, e-mail password reminders and so on. Better find somebody who has already written most of it.
