I forgot to mention, I also considered throwing up a messages.WARNING or
messages.ERROR to the user telling them they must supply a title to the
blog post. Since we don't require the user to input a title for other
media, I thought it would be more consistent to also allow users to
create a blog or blogpost without requiring a title. But I don't mind
changing my implementation if people think that requiring the user to
input a title is a better solution than giving a default title.
