HFS Simple Blog 1 - What and Why?

A lot of folks are setting out on their journey to learn how to "program" websites using PHP.

One of the best ways to learn PHP is to create something basic, but useful.
So what better "thing" to create than a Very Simple Blog System, with a twist.

I have three motivations for doing this. These are more like questions I have, that need to be answered.

  1. Having used things like Wordpress and CodeIgniter and other frameworks which use a lot of code, could I write something super lightweight?
  2. Just how far could I take this in regards to the "features" of a full blown Blog that uses a much more complex script?
  3. And could I use it to both demonstrate and teach the basics of PHP?
