Implemented in 4.x
Implementation tracked in MGNLBLOG@jira.
Implement a collection of page and component templates that enable blogging with Magnolia CMS. Blog functionality is often asked for on RFP's. While we don't see Magnolia CMS as a blogging platform per se, the infrastructure we provide out of the box should make it almost trivial to provide blog functionality that to some extend might even exceed some of the existing options. It could also be useful for our own bloggers, or used as a system to provide blog space for the community once we have a proper forge.

To be decided
- Should the blog module be part of standard STK or its own module?
