Hi Phil,

First off thanks for all the contributions you have made to the field via open source contributions, podcasts and blog posts.

Now that you are all buttered up :) Would you mind if I copied your site theme and functionality verbatim to run my own blog?

Also could you share what your blog writing workflow is? I am assuming you are running on Windows? If you are do you have the latest version of Jekyll up and running (I have not yet tried so it may be straightforward).

Thanks,
Jarrod

Feel free. I suggest tweaking some things like colors and the title to make it your own.

Also could you share what your blog writing workflow is?

  1. Create a branch
  2. Create a file for the post in the _posts directory.
  3. Open the file in Markdown Pad
  4. Copy the front-matter from another post into this new one and tweak it.
  5. Randomly hit keys on the keyboard until something bordering on intelligible results.
  6. Create a commit and push it to GitHub.
  7. Visit the repo on GitHub and create a pull request.
  8. Review my own PR.
  9. Hit the green merge button to publish it.

There's still the possibility that I made mistakes in the markdown as the GitHub markdown rendering and the Jekyll rendering aren't exactly the same. But I find I generally don't need to run Jekyll locally to test it.

However, when I was developing my blog, I definitely did run Jekyll on Windows.
