Origins

This blog is a fork of Tom Preston-Werner's, with some notable changes, including:

  • Styling / layout -- (obviously), although the general appearance is still fairly similar.
  • Tags -- Jekyll doesn't support tags. The included Rakefile adds support and works by generating a 'tags.html' file which is pushed to the repo along with new content. Originally found at: http://gist.github.com/143571

In his README.textfile file, Tom Preston-Werner has this to say:

It is automatically transformed by Jekyll into a static site whenever I push this repository to GitHub.

I was tired of having my blog posts end up in a database off on some remote server. That is backwards. I've lost valuable posts that way. It want to author my posts locally in Textile or Markdown. My blog should be easily stylable and customizable any way I please. It should take care of creating a feed for me. And most of all, my site should be stored on GitHub so that I never lose data again.
