    88I disagree, quite strongly. In my experience, relatively non-technical clients think of the blog as a "page" on their website. I've also used it as a way to let clients name the blog page something like Latest News, set its slug, add a blurb to the page (with template support) add it to menus, and allow them to set a featured image for a banner or something on the latest posts page.
