Admin user unable to edit posts

I have given admin priviledges to a user skell00 in confluence however they are unable to edit blog posts. Why is this? They have the highest level of access already. they are in the 'administers' group and also the 'confluence-users' group. I cannot give them any more priviledges as they have the same as me.
