I want to create a site collection based on a site template that contains a calendar app and a blog subsite.

I explain, i have a site that contains a subsite of type blog site and also contains a calendar in sharepoint 2013, i saved the site as a template and checked include content.

However, when i create a new sitecollection based on that template, i get the calendar app but never the blog subsite...

Am i missing something here? And how can we do this please?
