My First Blog Post Using Jekyll

  —A test post with Jekyll.

My first post on GitHub.

Blogger has served me well for a long time. I use a custom domain and Blogger doesn’t support HTTPS for those domains.

I wanted to consolidate my articles and notes into a Git repository. Doing so made the move to GitHub a no brainer. This change motivated me to move to Markdown so my note and articles all use the same markup language.

Jekyll has an impressive collection of tools to export blogs. I was able to export my blog from Blogger quickly and without trouble.

The initial revision of the site used the Jekyll-Clean theme. The Git repository is forked from Jekyll-Clean, but it’s been rewritten using Boostrap 3. The only improvement I made was to change the layout and include files and update the CSS.
