If you don't find a "shrinkwrapped" package that will do what you 
want, consider adapting Wordpress to do it for you.  I say do this 
with WP because I know it can be done easily enough and because you 
are familiar with it already.

It wouldn't be at all difficult to script the creation of new blogs 
and you could aggregate quite easily with an RSS feed watcher (because 
you would add each sub-blog to the a master blog db in the same script).
