Further to what Chris already said; it helps if you expand the security view. Click "Columns" in your Security Editor, and bring in the additional columns you need to look out for.


Mind the error message in yellow "You cannot edit this item because you do not have write access to it". You also have to have Write permission allowed for items below "Blogs" item in order to use workflow states. It is not enough to have Workflow State Write or Workflow Command Execute permissions for your approver role.


Can you please check in Access viewer that no other role is overwriting the permissions you have assigned (specially workflow related permissions).
