It's fairly easy to do with small objects, but for portraits it is very difficult, and even when you have the optimal conditions and settings, the amount of blur is usually minimal. As others have said, you need to zoom in on the subject, and the background needs to be distant. Here is an example, taken with another long zoom compact camera; I used an equivalent 354mm, zoomed in tight:
