I installed T3Blog, but, I would like to integrate the blog with the  
rest of the site, and don't find much information about this.

At the moment, I installed tt_news and commenting system (but I can't  
get comments working), and I think this could be a possible solution  
(i will try TIMTAB too).

Me too, but, as I said, needs to work "standalone", and I would like  
to integrate with the rest of my tests.

I'm trying to be brave :) but Typo3 is totally diferent from all I  
worked, and, well, is not too easy as I thought. I suppose TS is a  
powerfull piece of Typo3, but for the moment, I can't understand it yet.

I don't need luck, but a miracle :D
