Hello, World!

from my new(ish) blog

Posted by Brad on June 18, 2016

Hey, everybody! This is me finally getting my new blog set up.

I’ve blogged on and off over the past few years at this domain, but I’ve been using Tumblr to host the posts, and that created too many excuses for me not to publish things.

Tumblr is a great platform, but personally I prefer working in the terminal and writing my posts in Markdown, so it just wasn’t the best for me, and I’ve come to realize that.

Instead, I’ve set this blog up to use Jekyll, which not only runs on my beloved Ruby, but will also let me write and publish posts right here from the terminal, with nothing more than some text files and a git push to Heroku, my personal host of choice.

It’s yet to be seen if this gets me publishing more, but I’ve decimated my excuses! Hurray!
