I am looking for assistance to resolve an exception being thrown when I attempt to copy an
added Blog list item from one Sharepoint WebApplication/ContenctDB(Webapp0) to a Blog list on a different Sharepoint WebApplication(Webapp1).  The exception raised is
System.UnauthorizedAccessException, however I am the primary adminstrator for both sites,
plus I am executing the code using RunWithElevatedPrivileges.  Help decyphering the error
would be appreicated.

I have attached the code.

The Exception being thrown is:

Error loading and running event receiver CopyBlogListItem.CopyBlogListItem in CopyBlogListItem,
Version = 1.0.0.0,  Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=ac27c065e1c5c56b.
Additional information is below.

: CopyBlogListItem, SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(copyListItem):

We had similar stuff and we tried that way but we have found that to run full method copylistitem under elevatedprevilages is not sufficient. so there are two thing you will have to do.

1. User elevated previlages at the time of targetItem.Update(); only if possible.
or
2. use impersonation for entire Copylistitem method.

Option 2: Impersonation worked great.   Thank you.
