First of all, you do not do anything wrong ;)

Blocked state means that this package is depending on some other package
is currently scheduled for building (or waiting for another one as well).

openSUSE:Factory is our upstream distribution, so you see this there quite
often, because the distribution itself is currently building.

If you want to try your package build _NOW_, your only choice is to use the
local build via "osc" tool.
