So I think I’m done with WordPress. I like being able to write with Markdown. WordPress makes that difficult. Yes, there’s the Markdown block, but it’s still something of a WYSIWYG.
I suppose they’re catering to less techy people, and that’s fine. But it doesn’t suit me well.
Slack recently updated their text input to a rich editor that automatically formats their (odd) flavor of Markdown as you type. It’s okay in that context, but I like being able to compose in a basic text editor and then just copy/paste into the blog site.
So I’m going start this up again, and I’m going to do it with GitHub Pages. I’m also working on transferring all of the posts from here to there. I might write a post about the process, but don’t hold your breath.
It’s been this long since I previously posted. A bit longer won’t hurt. I’ve already got a new one up on my feelings regarding C# 8. It’ll be my first post on the new site.
I’ll put up a new short post here when I have the other site up. Ideally, I’d like to configure a redirect, but I don’t know if I can do that.
It’s up!! I’d like to present my new GitHub Pages site! I still have some work to do as far as theming. I have literally no web experience, so it’s going to be a journey.
