I love writing. I write long emails, long chat texts, long code comments. Some of my rants are epic. Sometimes I'm amazed that my colleagues have the patience to read it all 🙂
Yet I’ve neglected my personal blog. This happens because Twitter fulfilled my needs for shitposting and for code I ended up creating snippets as Gists, many of which are private, meant for colleagues.
No more. I dusted off my blog and will commence a regular posting schedule.
Website Yak Shaving
Like all professional software developers that want to write more, I started with yak shaving by updating my blog:
- Migrated from Middleman to Jekyll for generating my static website
- Changed the design from something homemade to a modified brianmaierjr/long-haul; design should be responsive on mobile phones
- Disabled comments, replaced widget with an email address — if you want to talk with me about my articles, we can do so in private
- Automatic thumbnails for Vimeo/YouTube videos, enabled for Twitter/Facebook cards; expect more videos soon
- Integration of MathJax for math formulas
