If you want. That's certainly one valid approach. Another popular
approach stores blog entries and comments in individual files, using the
Unix file system as the indexer.
and also do i need encryption for security or just simple email
password??


Only you can answer that. The amount of protection you need depends
entirely on what you're protecting. If there is no personal information,
and all you're trying to do is provide a context, then no encryption is
necessary. If you ask people for their credit card number, then you darned
well better have SSL running.
