Blogging Platform?

I am teaching Internet Literacy again after a break of two years. I used to use classblogmeister. What is the best blogging platform for high schoolers?

I want:
1. To be able to monitor posts/comments.
2. It has to look cool, have high functionality, embed video, etc...
3. I want to the garden wall open. But I'd like to close it if I need to.

I checked out edmodo but I want rich text option and they dont seem to have it. Otherwise it looks pretty cool.

Is google+ the answer? This doesnt seem to have rich text (I need to look at the shortcuts). And it doesnt seem to be searchable?
