Ensure you have setup the authorizations for read and edit. Then login, 
and you should see the New Entry link. Specifically make sure you're 
declaring the security elements before including BlogIt.

Correct, templates for new blog entries are in Site.BlogIt-CoreTemplate.

Downloading PmForm separately is not necessary. Use the version included 
in the BlogIt zip/tar. Simply put pmform.php into the \cookbook directory.

If you still have problems feel free to send me the blogit related items 
from your config.
