iGoogle Daily Me alternatives?

So me and my best friend spend 10 mins a day updating our 'Daily Me' gadget on our iGoogle pages.

Daily Me is great because it lets us put a silly picture, a silly link, and a few random stories/updates right on each others iGoogle pages.

Daily Me sucks because it only accomodates a very small amount of text (and if you go over that amount, you'll get an error and possibly lose everything you just type). You have to guess how close to the limit you are. Also, once you change the Daily Me, your old version is lost forever.

Anyone have any alternative options for me that can:
1. Provide an inline picture (pulled from a link)
2. Allow for plenty of story telling
3. Archive old versions
4. Fit right in my iGoogle

Yes, we could do emails or use a different home page but we are both committed to Google.

It sounds like waht you want is a blog. iGoogle pulls in RSS feeds, right? Why not make a free Blogspot page and update that?

Blogs:
I'm going to give it a shot. Sadly I think I need something less exciting than a blog, my IT department frowns on things that aren't even remotely business related so if I start loading 'blogspot' every day, they'll probably block that url...

RSS/Sneaky Blogs:
Can you incorporate a picture in the blog on the iGoogle page?

Find a blog client you can submit to over email. wordpress does this nto sure about blogspot. Then add the RSS to google.
