Using Blueprint as a Drafting Tool 
A by-product of completing this task is that Blueprint has gone from being something I started working with after the architecture of a new site was established (most often with pen and paper, followed by laborious and under-appreciated site maps put together in
Illustrator Lineform), to being an indispensible tool in the drafting process: I can create a working site prototype in mere seconds, and manipulate it quickly within the drag-n-drop interface, testing hypotheses and seeing roadblocks much sooner than if I were starting from sketches.
Obviously this isn't a substitute for thinking through the more complex IA requirements of larger sites, but for a typical small Blueprint site it's both appropriate and efficient, since whatever is achieved at this stage is carried over seamlessly into the development.
It's also considerably easier for people we're working with to understand, since the results have the dimension and interactivity of a finished site.
