I'm trying to do a simple warlock conversion and thought about doing it as a sorcerer archtype. I've seen alot of other versions, most very well done, but its not what I'm looking for.
This is what I have so far.
Eldritch Blast (Sp:): As a standard action the warlock can cast a 60-ft eldritch blast of energy, this is a range touch attack. At 1st level the eldritch blast does 1d6 points of damage, the blast damage increases by 1d6 every 2 levels after 1st. As a trade off the warlock loses his ability to cast his highest level spell (thus a 1st level warlock can cast cantrips, but not 1st level spells).
The only thing is I'm not sure if this works with most of the sorcerer's bloodline abilities. The other idea I had was to replace the sorcerer's bonus spell or feat with the ability to use a touch spell with the eldritch blast.

Maybe have the eldritch blast reduce the number of spells (not cantrips) known by 1 per spell level (minimum 1 per spell level). That way, at 1st level, a warlock sorcerer has her special attack and a utility spell or defensive spell or another type of attack, for a little extra versatility.
Or maybe give it eldritch blast at 1st level, then 1 spell known per level, the highest level selected cannot exceed 1/2 the warlock's level (minimum 1, maximum 9), and the warlock can use all her spells known at will, or each a number of times per day equal to her Charisma bonus, or a number of times per day equal to 1/2 her level + her Charisma bonus, or a number of times per day equal to her level + her Charisma bonus, etc. etc...
correct me if i am wrong but doesn't witch seem a hair more appropriate for a pathfinderized warlock.
I couldn't say you where wrong, just a different take on the subject.The warlock in 3.5 has an eldritch blast he could do every round plus invocations he can use at will (as a standard action), while the witch has arcane spells and hexes. So the mechanics are all different.
I think the witch is Pathfinder's warlock alternative. Here's a variant I designed:
