The Blog Move and Recent Changes

30 May 2013

I began to make some big changes to the site recently. The biggest is that this is no longer hosted on Wordpress. I have moved to GitHub Pages with Jekyll. They come for various reasons, but here are a few that I’d like to share:

  1. I wanted to learn something new. This is built on Jekyll + GitHub pages. Also, I really like what I’m seeing with Prose.io so far.
  2. Creating blog posts with Markdown appeals to me very much.
  3. It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to handcraft a little HTML/CSS. I plan to use this as a playground for some ideas that I have.
  4. The savings of $1 per month will be great!

There’s still a lot more to be done (missing images, broken links, no comments, etc).
