It is not clear to me what exactly you wish to achieve.
Do you want to place a link somewhere which opens a form, by which
you can open a new blog page in edit mode?

Normally I would just place a form on a page, which has  a text input
and submit button: A FoxNewPage box. See examples on

use (:fox .... newedit="{$$Title}" foxgroup=Group ...

newedit opens a new page in edit mode.
If you have template= specified, this will be used to prepopulate
the new page.

If you don't want the form being visible for a start, you could use
togglelink (See Cookbook:ShowHide) to hide it.
