Automattic – WordPress.com's parent company – won the right to control the .blog TLD last year for around $19 million. And from Nov. 21, the .blog domains will officially be available to registrations, you'll be able to purchase a .blog domain at WordPress.com or through partner domain name registrars of Automattic. Another important point is to use WordPress will not be required, registration of this domain names is open to anyone, regardless of platform publishing, regardless of what type of site you have or who holds it.
