Usability going down…

This is less a rant and more a sigh of resignation.  A client has recently requested that we add blogging capability to our mobile IM application, and this troubles me to no end, because I sincerely feel that it will unnecessarily complicate an app that isn’t even quite stable yet.  Of course, the client comes first and I’m in no position to make decisions here but the least I can do is air out my opinion and hope it takes hold.
