Probably won't be helpful for admissions, however, many schools seem to host law student blogs. It might be helpful to later getting paid to blog for the school.

Definitely put it on there, as long as you don't have stuff that reflects negatively on you on the blog. It also raises the bar for the blog - make sure it's well-written.

Only on TLS will people be adamantly opposed to including the rank of an international school on one's resume, but including a link to an electronic personal travel journal is a-okay. Good grief. Many TLS'ers abhore the "special snowflake" syndrome, and to me this would be a prime example of one. IMO, posting a link to your blog can only hurt; it won't help. But, perhaps I'm just getting old, haha.
