It's a default template that should be available under Site Actions, Create, Sites and Workspaces (2007) or Site Actions, New Site, Blog (2010) – Eric Alexander Dec 15 '11 at 14:39

You can use feature stapling to automatically provision a Blog sub-site as the MySites are provisioned, or you can provision the subsites via a console application or powershell for any existing site.

If you are looking to highlight the blog posts in the User Profiles I would probably add a web part to the person.aspx page (Overview tab) or add an additional tab that focuses on this content.
