I'm hesitant to want to use VJOURNAL because a VJOURNAL entry is
associated with a specific date, whereas a memo is not. For example,
I'll have memos like "books to read", and then list the books within
that memo, or I could write down some notes from a short meeting I had
with someone, or just some ideas that I thought of over some time (I've
also found it a good place to list Christmas gift ideas for people :) ).

The VJOURNAL example in RFC 2445 seems to imply that the DTSTART tag
is required, but the spec says it's optional. So if I use the VJOURNAL
for memos I could leave out the DTSTART tag so that the memo isn't
associated with a particular date. This would make it possible to add
a journal/blogger like you suggest.
