So first post of this new blog, I’m using jekyll, as I tend to use markdown for many code docs so makes sense to use it for blog posts that talk about these things. Will be a bit rough whilst I find my feet with all the formatting etc. and images but as self hosted at least won’t dissappear over night like the last one. I’ll see what I can recover from old blogs, and a few posts I wanted to update anyway so the plan is write them again anyway.

One of the nice thing is I write and use Sublime Text and Sublime SFTP to edit and update these. Slightly less fancy than using git but good enough. I’m now using scrivener to write the actual blog posts (well except for this one) and then manually mark them up in Sublime Text before uploading.

In theory I can get Scrivener to export it directly to markdown I think but tbh I’m a manual kind of person…
