Using Github Pages for Blogging

I’ve wanted to move this programming blog away from Artima for what seems like several years now (Here’s an earlier update on the process).

The conversion took a surprising amount of research, partly because I’ve been away from blogging technology for quite awhile.

Finding Flow

(This post is an experiment to test a new blogging platform. This version is just straight out of MarkdownPad into Github pages, with no other software on my local machine) Balancing Uncertainty via Concrete Projects The Reinventing Business project is my “own personal Everest to climb,” my project that, once I saw it, I couldn’t unsee.

New Programming Blog Site

Finally! My programming blog officially moves from Artima to this site, as of now. I’ve been poking at this problem for at least two years. It almost seems like I was unconsciously waiting for the right system to sort itself out, and it has: Jekyll on Github pages (with MarkdownPad for editing) has won over my heart and mind. I’m pretty darn happy about this — I had gotten to the point where it was just too much trouble to blog on Artima, and so a lot of ideas have gone un-captured.
