I understand. I guess I'm just thinking in practical terms (that my site visitors might be thinking in). Even though blogs are not DIRECTLY related to categories, they are related through the posts themselves (blog is related to a post which is related to a category), like you said. And for that reason, there SHOULD already be a built-in functionality in Sitefinity that allows to display blog categories that are related only to [posts in] a single blog.
In my example, I already have one blog, which has its own CMS page containing a BlogPosts control (showing only that blog). On that same page, I'm using a CategoriesTree to show the categories used in this blog. However, now I need to add another blog, somewhat UNRELATED to the first blog (when it comes to the type of information in it), and it doesn't really make any sense to show ALL blog categories in a CategoriesTree.
In my opinion (and maybe this is just me), but Blogs, such as they are in Sitefinity, are not really "blogS" but more like ONE SINGLE BLOG, with multiple "sub-blogs." So I suppose it might be just the terminology that's confusing me. :-)
