One fine morning my WordPress blog was dead. No explanations, no log entries. I never liked it, really. Once a tool for publishing text content, it has become a designer’s platform CMS-ish defacto software. Over crowded with half-baked plugins and coded in clunky PHP.

So, I searched GitHub for answers. Turns out, they produce their own blog platform: Jekyll. And it’s powered by GitHub itself!

Jekyll is a static site builder, it runs without a database or much infrastructure of any kind. Posts are simple Markdown text files.

This is, my first post. I’ll play with themes and stuff as I go. Right now, it’s about the content and keeping things simple.
