Yes.  As long as you mean [[!Blog]] and not [[Blog]], for you want a link to
the category Blog, not just a link to a page called Blog.

Actually, it doesn't matter if it's [[!Blog]] or [[!FrenchFries]] or
anything else, as long as your (:pagelist fmt=#recentblog:) (or whatever)
markup is set up correctly.

My next step would now be to customize this blog index page. Obviously

I think the template is set up so that you'd see the edit link only if you
have editing privileges, but you could just delete it if you prefer.  It was
set up that way so that the editor would have an easy way to get to the edit
page.  Certainly the whole layout is customizable using the templates.

You can do this by using (:title:) markup, so like (:title My cool
experiences from my holidays:).  I'm still not clear on whether you'll need
to use (*:title:) or anything like this as a result of the current beta
series... but I haven't checked this recipe for compatibility yet anyway.

* Use tags for blog entries to categorize them into stuff like "News",
> "Pics", "Holiday", "Tech" etc...

Yep, or just categories.
