Please help us get going so our blog doesn't remain some neat idea that we never made happen!

A long-distance friend and I are thinking of starting a blog together as a fun way to keep in touch. It won't necessarily be a private blog, but it isn't something we are trying to present to others - more like a shared scrapbook or journal or something like that. We both like the idea of photo correspondence and thought we would ask the brilliant hive mind for some suggestions as far as what we might photograph, how often we post, whether we should have a theme, or change themes every week... anything really. Suggest away!
Things to take into consideration: we are not professional photographers, we will both mostly be using our iphones, our common interests are vast and varied so the subject matter could be anything. To be somewhat specific, we both love: crafting, cooking, reading, writing, music, film, photography, interior decoration, people watching, psychology, coffee, tea, walking, thrifting, chocolate, creativity of most any kind, beautiful details, simple joys, all the little things in life, and on and on…
We've seen a couple of blogs where people simply take pictures of the same thing on the same day and then post them, creating a diptych of saltshakers, the moon, or whatever. Although we both like this idea, it would be great to hear about other approaches to correspondence photo blogging.
Incorporating text is something we've thought about as well.
Also, any suggestions as far as which platform would be best suited to this type of blog?
Thanks in advance!
