To get things started I've created a small script taking inspiration from Josh Earls post. It allows you to quickly get a new blog post up and running with scriptogr.am, just enter a post title and it's all set, easy.
shortDate=`date +"%y-%m-%d"` filename=`date +"%y-%m-%d".md` [ "$1" ] && title="$1" || title="New Title" echo "--- Title: $title Date: $shortDate Published: false ---" > $filename
Usage (title is optional)
sh post.sh "<title>"
