Update on the blog script

I said I would explain more about the blog script I have developed (am developing).

The script uses plain text files with Markdown formatting for the posts. Markdown allows users to include so-called "rich text" features such as headings, italics, bold, unordered (bullet) lists, unordered (numbered) lists, hyperlinks, blockquotes, and more, but stored as simple text files.

No sooner had I started to use the script than I could see 2 or 3 additional features that would be useful.

Initially, the scripts consisted of display blog posts, create post, edit and delete posts. I soon realised I would need an option to save posts as drafts, and I thought it might also be handy to be able to upload images to include within posts. These facilities I've now written. The former I can't show, but to demonstrate the latter, here is a photo of when we had snow 6 years ago.
