Creating a write freely blog

Creating a blog post on a writefreely instance is a case of:

Logging in to your account, after which you are simply presented with your page where you can start typing.

Add a title, then the main body of your post.

I sometimes add a list of links, which relate to any items mentioned in my post. I then add a list of tags. Under that I usually have a sort of footer, which has copyleft information both in text and a graphic.

To add a picture you need to add some markdown which points to the location of the image.

For the purpose of this, I am creating a draft, however once the post is finished, clicking on draft at the top, will allow me to 'publish to' a blog hosted by my account. Write freely allows for multiple blogs from the same login. Which is helpful for different subjects or topics for example.

Following a conversation on the Mosaic browser. I decided to try and view my personal Journal blog in the Lynx console browser. Screenshot below.

The blog works really nicely on Lynx. I can navigate, select links and the various static pages. Lynx does not display pictures or other media, but this is fine. It should display the alt text data though.

This at least allows my website to be viewed in other browsers at least, not that I can see people moving en-masse to text based browsers.

Lynx can be installed with apt install lynx as root user of course.
