If you go to the "manage" page of your blog, there's a list of blog entries. If you hover over one, "edit" and "delete" links show up (hmm, Sam, Peter: does that have non-hover access for people on a touchscreen device?), which you can click to edit the blog entry in question.

To add a photo, click on the small "Picture" button right above the large textarea (which contains your blog entry) - it's the 7th from the left, right after the buttons to create links. When you click this, you get a list of the photos in your gallery, one of which you can select (thumb, regular or large size) to insert (and there's options for selecting a photo from flickr or uploading a new one). This will generate simplecode for showing an image: , which you could also enter manually. The FAQ also contains many answers for howto questions related to the blogs, but it looks as if it hasn't been updated for the current design (Sam/Peter!), so that might not be too helpful. Probably your best bet currently if you have questions about how anything works is to just ask here. We're happy to help. :)

Had to check that :) Yes, you can edit the entries on a touch screen device. You click once to show the links, then click on the links to edit/delete. Clearly not ideal though, so this is going to need some rethinking going forward!

I've updated the FAQ about inserting photos in blog entries, and about 40 others while I was at it. Clearly that needed doing.

danydena, as Sander mentioned, let us know if you have any other questions; we're happy to help!! And it might give me some ideas for more FAQ's too :)
