We looked at django-cms, but went with page-cms, though this was also
partly because of client requirements. These days, I would recommend
feincms. Please see
for a blog article about how a NASA division picked feincms (django-cms was
the close, second choice).

It is probably best to use an external blogging application. There are
several choices here, but I would go with Mingus:
One big advantage of Mingus is that it is a collection of Django applications,
and hence can easily be integrated into a Django project. Now, there is also
apparently some integration with feincms, though I have not tried out this
aspect: http://www.toolpart.hu/blog/2010/01/28/feincms-integration-mingus/
