First post on my new blog - December 28, 2009

This is my first post on the blog I set up with jekyll. Jekyll is a powerful static site generator that makes it easy to maintain a website, and allows you to write content using simple markup languages rather than messing with html.

I learned of jekyll through Exherbo developer alip's blog. It seemed ideal for my needs, so I decided to convert my website for trickle from PHP and Texy! to jekyll. I was very impressed and interested in jekyll's blogging abilities, so I created this page.

Jekyll is very neat in that you can set up a git repository on a simple shared web host to generate the site each time it gets pushed to. I won't go into the details because they are available all over the internet, but it makes website maintenance very convenient.

I'm not really sure what's in store for this blog, but I figured some people might find the stuff I've been working on interesting, and it seemed like a good platform to organize and talk about my ideas.
