Blog feature update

This week, I wanted to be able to control what to share publicly and what to share only with friends. So I made it so that users can sign up for their own accounts, and then I can approve them as "members" of the site. Members are able to see posts that I've marked as "private," and they can also leave comments. I also added a sidebar and an archives page, and limited what gets displayed on the index page.

My next goal is to try to figure out how to enable members to compose rich text comments. I think this will mean I'll have to dig deeper into how Django forms work.
