Although I'm not familiar with blogs and am not sure whether I'm
able to reproduce the same error, we will probably need to know
some basic informations, for example, the versions of Emacs,
emacs-w3m and the external w3m executable.  The easiest way to
do that is to type:

M-x report-emacs-w3m-bug RET

Could you send it or the copy of what it shows?  If such a
command is not available, the version of emacs-w3m you are using
is too old and you need to use the latest one.

In addition, to examine the Lisp backtrace is generally helpful.
To make it contain useful informations, do the following:

M-x set-variable RET debug-on-error RET t RET
M-x load-library RET w3m RET
M-x load-library RET w3m-form RET

And then perform the operation in which the error occurs.  In
order to redo it, type:

M-x abort-recursive-edit RET

I or other developers will be able to analyze it.  There's no
guarantee to solve the problem, though.
