The Alloy Templates are widely used by partners and customers as well as internally at EPiServer. They create a good starting point for projects and showcase some simple page types. Blogs is something available in the EPiServer Social Packages but the blogs I built are made in EPiServer CMS and available in both MVC and Webforms. These blogs are based on a hierarchical placement with the year and month being listing pages. Read more about the advantages of hierarchical content and large scale sites here http://joelabrahamsson.com/building-large-scale-episerver-sites/.
The templates come with three page types, Blog Start, Blog List and Blog Item. It also comes with three block types, Blog Listing, Blog Archive and Blog Tags.
I also created a walkthrough video of package from a users perspective.
Best way to install the code is to setup a new Alloy Project using the VS integration and add the code in the root of your site, Include in project and build. Email me if you have any questions or issues.
