Hello! I've moved my blog (sallonoroff.co.uk) from a self-hosted WP to Jekyll on GitHub Pages. This site is largely based on Poole but has had numerous modifications, hacks and bodges applied. You might find some of the code here useful to copy, but I'm not sure it'd be a good idea to fork the whole site.

Here's a list of pages that have helped along the way.
