There isn't one built-in to the blog software. I checked a couple mods out, but they were junky (brought you to other web sites with ads, ...)

I recommend you install and use FireFox as your web browser. Just last month it reached 50% of the browsers used to surf the web, the first browser to beat Microsoft's Internet Explorer in over a decade. FF has always been better than IE, but IE has fallen so far behind technologically that most people are switching over. With Firefox, it spell checks every input field on every web page on any site. So if you use your browser for writing email messages, it will spell check that for you the same way. That way, you'll only have one dictionary to worry about across all web sites.

Firefox has hundreds of "add-ons" that you can install as well, like one that jumps to dictionaries, thesauruses, Wikipedia or Google on any word you highlight on any web page. [I just now highlighted the word "thesauruses" to make sure it wasn't "thesauri" for the plural, and found out both spellings are acceptable.]
