First-time blogger, long-time reader of blogs! I know there are many options out there, and eventually, I’ll probably distill the contents of this page and put it on my professional website. For now though, GitHub Pages seems like the best choice for this blog, since:

  • I already have a GitHub account,
  • the project is hosted on GitHub,
  • there are style templates,
  • and Markdown syntax makes presenting content really easy–even code!
