minor accessibility improvement in the site

just an FYI: the "insert image" pop-up on the HTML version of the post-creation page now has the option to add alternative text, and both the HTML and Rich Text Editor versions of the "insert image" pop-up now link to a (soon to be improved) FAQ explaining what this wacky "short description" field is for. So if you know people who are putting images into their posts without alternative text, you can explain to them how incredibly easy it now is to add alt text.

Of course it now occurs to me that if I really want to make a difference in people's Internet experience, I should go contribute an easy way to add alt text to the tumblr code base.

Somebody, go do that!

Thanks, and please, don't go down the a11y rabbit hole of Tumblr. We'd never see you again!
