Added Timestamp to My Eleventy New Post Utility

A user of my Eleventy New Post utility submitted a feature request yesterday suggesting I add the post's timestamp to the generated post instead of just the date.

If you put a timestamp in a post's date front matter property, Eleventy ignores it since it expects that property to just be the post date. To implement this feature, I added a configuration option that causes the utility to add a new property to the post called timeStamp with the full date/time for the post creation.

I also updated this site to use the timeStamp when available. Enjoy!
