When I started learning Laravel to teach myself I built a simple blog application by following a tutorial on Laracasts. When I finished the tutorial I deleted the blog I had written and wrote a new one from scratch, which became the blog I am using here. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it worked well enough that I copied the code to other projects I was working on. When I started building in localization capabilities it became a little too unwieldy to keep copying changes back and forth between multiple projects so I turned it into a Laravel package for ease of use and maintenance.
There are still a lot of features I'd like to add to it, currently it provides only basic functionality. But for me the biggest feature is the support for Laravel localization. Out of the box it comes with English and French language files. It is available through composer as escuccim/larablog.
