You can link an image in the body of your post using Markdown syntax:

![alt-text](image-link)

For example:

![example image](https://t3.ftcdn.net/jpg/00/92/53/56/240_F_92535664_IvFsQeHjBzfE6sD4VHdO8u5OHUSc6yHF.jpg)

makes:

You'll need to upload it to an image host first, like imgur, I don't think there's a direct media upload for those - just the cover image.

You can use uploader button to upload images from you computer, then you get URL which you can use for markdown img tag

The button which says "images" in the bottom of the page ("write a post" page), like on the screenshot above
