Blog posts are structurally very similar to Articles but differ in terms of purpose. Site's that maintain two streams of content: news annoucements, and more casual style blog posts, can use both content types to separate these streams.

The Blog post also comes with a dedicated 'blogger' role so that casual staff can be given access to only create & edit Blog posts.
