I didn't understood what you want.

If you want to just deploy a branch, or a specific tag, it isn't
possible for now. blohg uses the 'tip' revision. This may be
implemented in the future.

If you are "developing" your blog on a public server, like bitbucket,
and want to keep this repository in sync with your server, that
actually runs your blog, you may want to setup a cronjob that pulls
the changes from your bitbucket repository to a local copy. Please
notice that you don't need to run 'hg update' on your server's repo.
blohg uses the mercurial API to get the history of the repository.

I'm planning a feature to make it easy to people to "develop" their
blogs from bitbucket, using the POST service of bitbucket to warn the
blohg installation about a newer version of the content, and making it
fetch the posts automatically from bitbucket.

I hope I answered what you want. If not, please ask again :)
