comment Why is blocking never placed “sideways”?
The blocking between studs you see running horizontal and flat is typically fire blocking, required when you get above 8' ceilings in most locations. When installed vertically, it's usually for a nailing surface (cabinets, railings, drywall joints). Structural is occasionally a shear wall with a diagonal brace, or the blocking between joists.
