Mission: I wanted to start publishing my thoughts on a blog again. I already had one hosted on blogger but wanted to try something new. Here were few of my requirements:

  • Ability to manage blog data on Github (Command line FTW).
  • Switch from HTML based to Markdown (Improve my markdown in the process).
  • Static site for better performance.

I came across Jekyll on the interwebs. I found it much easier to manage my blog data with Jekyll than with Wordpress/Blogger. It has a lot of customizations which hopefully I will discover along the way..
