It would be useful to be able to use the blog layouts for other things without it automatically linking to my blog posts. For example, I have a page that I would like to use almost like a blog, but more for journaling. However, when I try to add a blog layout, it autofills with my blog posts. It would be nice if it was free to edit and have two "blogs" with only one being linked to the real posts and the other filled with custom content.
I enjoy the pre-made layouts and easy editing abilities that the blog templates provide. It also makes it easier for something like journaling or quick posts that don't need a whole article. Otherwise, the alternative is to painstakingly insert images, textboxes, links, etc. and DIY my own "blog".
