Within the loop you have a full page to play with same like in any 'normal' (page) template.
$Content.FirstParagraph
or
$Content.LimitWordCount(50)

see - http://api.silverstripe.org/3.2/class-HTMLText.html

If you want your current latestBlogEntry function to work, try returning blogpost rather than the process.
