I'm stuck with how to create a new blog post. I'm navigating to blogs and then using the big Create button above. But it does not create a blog, but a Page. Even if I select a blog template then, it leaves me with a draft of a page. What the hell?!

Near as I can tell, "Blog" in confluence doesn't mean a content type, but a layout for a page.
It's high friction and whoever designed this workflow has never used a blog or blogging platform in their lives. Or if they have, they were forced to work inside of the Page metaphor that Confluence uses and that doesn't equal a blog post.
Labels (what Confluence uses for tags) aren't visible until you've published the page!
