  • Hi Rahul,

    The MySite host site collection is common for all users. Hence, your master page changes on the my site host is visible to all. However, blog site is a sub-site created under a user's personal site ( different from mysite host site collection and is unique for every user). So, the master page changes are not visible there as it is a completely separate site collection.

    To apply your changes to all the user blogs, use feature stapling to staple your master page to the personal site of all users. Also, make sure the blog subsite uses the masterpage of its parent by pushing the master page and css changes to all sub-sites in the staplee feature code .
