How do I add a Create Blog button to a page?

I opened up the Create from Template macro so that I could allow Blog pages as a sub-page to the parent page I created, and for me (Confluence 5.7.3), Blog isn't in the template list.  Maybe Blog isn't a template, but regardless, how can I add a Create Blog button?

As an alternative, can I rename the Blog link in the sidebar?

Hi Sal,

A blog is not a page so it can not be a child of any page.

Now to create a blog, I created this user macro where you specify the space where to create the blog and any label you want to add


## @param Name:title=Name|type=string|desc=Button Text
## @param space:title=Space|type=spacekey
## @param label:title=Label|type=string|desc=Label to add to the new post
#set($paramlabel ="")
<a href="/pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey=$paramspace&labelsString=$paramlabel" class="aui-button"><span class="aui-icon aui-icon-small aui-iconfont-add-comment">Add </span> $paramName</a>




Thanks Nelson. Playing with how Blogs are organized, it became clear that they were treated differently and couldn't be nested... though I think that's more due to implementation than any real issue with nesting one or more blog hierarchies.
