Blitz does TONS OF DAMAGE. He has the highest damage of any support in the game without items. He is basically an effectively melee AD carry that is moonlighting as support because he is so good at it. His E is as good as Darius level 5 W at level 1. His ultimate randomly does tons of damage just because.
I build: boots, tear, g.heart, p.stone, ionian boots, glacial shroud (at this point I have 40%CDR)
I build this on everyone of my supports except I don't build a tear on other supports. It works on everybody to get the defenses and the CDR that supports benefit from so highly bot lane.
At this point I build a Manamune, which when combined with E does more damage than sheen I think and has the capability of providing a massive shielding boost through your passive.
After that I might consider a Frostborne Guantlet and a Banishee's Veil.
If you still have money coming in you might want to look at a BT, Maw or another Defense Item or two. That's how I Blitz. With 40% CDR I am constantly in overdrive.
Honestly, I like Nautilus for my support because he has a pull and a snare at level one, so he cam be better at level 1 first blood. Nautilus has a slow so he is more sticky. Astronautilus is an awesome skin.
