The reason people are saying that Google likes blogs is because blog content is generally updated frequently. Also, blogs tend to have new and different content regularly. Refreshing or rotating content isn't always as attractive to Googlebot...or your visitors. You don't have to have a blog to update your content regularly. Some people find it easier to use a blog interface to add new content to a site, but you could do the same with a CMS, a database or even via NotePad and your FTP software. It's all about fresh content.
