    I'm pretty sure that there are some scripts/plugins which will do it for you, but you have to specify which CMS are you using.

    It really depends on which platform your site is on. Some platforms automatically generate you a sitemap but you may have to find it hidden in the source code. Also, if you're using wordpress there are several plugins for this. You really should be more specific about the platform you're using otherwise we're all just guessing trying to help you.

    A blog sitemap is a collection of links outlining the structure of your entire website. These links make it possible for your visitors to navigate quickly and easily to any section of your website as long as it is listed properly in your sitemap.The main work of blog sitemap is to make finding posts and pages easier by listing them all in one place.

    It seems to me either. Sitemaps is useless as for visitors, as for SE spiders

    You don't need it on a blog, if you are already updating your blog on daily/weekly basis. And usually we don't create sitemaps for blog

    Generate a Complete Sitemap for your Blogger Blog
    This section is valid for both regular Blogger blogs (that use a .blogspot.com address) and also the self-hosted Blogger blogs that use a custom domain (like postsecret.com).
    Here’s what you need to do to expose your blog’s complete site structure to search engines with the help of an XML sitemap.
    1. Open the Sitemap Generator and type the full address of your blogspot blog (or your self-hosted Blogger blog).
    2. Click the Create Sitemap button and this tool will instantly generate the necessary text for your sitemap. Copy the entire generated text to your clipboard (see screenshot below).
    3. Next go to your Blogger dashboard and under Settings – > Search Preferences, the enable Custom robots.txt option (available in the Crawling and Indexing section). Paste the clipboard text here and save your changes.
    And we are done. Search engines will automatically discover your XML sitemap files via the robots.txt file and you don’t have to ping them manually.

    Thanks & Regards
    Trevor
