I'm currently rebuilding my site using Astro. Please bear with me as it comes together.

Blind3y3Design Version 1.0.0

Yay! We’re up and running using Jekyll. It took some time and has quite a learning curve, but if you’re even remotely comfortable with the command line and you want to create a “simple, blog-aware static site” then it could be the thing for you.

I am by no means a command line guru, and before Jekyll I had never used any markdown language. In just two days I got up and running using Jekyll to set this up. The biggest thing that drew me to using Jekyll was that I wanted to set up a workflow using node, grunt, and sass. Once I installed ruby and set up my grunt stack I realized that it would take more work to version my site before I could push it through FTP to my web host. With Jekyll I could set up a site on Github Pages and my version control would be built in to site contruction and deployment.

I have had quite a lot of fun setting everything up and learning more about the command line and how to use these new technologies.

Big thanks to the creators of Jekyll @Nick Quaranto and @Tom Preston-Werner

Thanks for reading!
