Switching to Jekyll on Github

Welcome reader!

One of my first blogs I’ve published is with Wordpress at www.frankshin.com and it worked well at first. There were some … inefficiencies. Wordpress is huge. Maybe too huge/complex for what I need to run a simple blog.

Over the past couple of years, more and more blogs were being converted to octopress/jekyll. This piqued my interest. Why was everyone in the tech community abandoning Wordpress? Well, instead of reading blog posts on ‘why’ they left Wordpress, I figured it would be best to just dive right in to Jekyll. And that’s what I did.

A quick search led me to find Jekyll Now

After forking the repo and setting it up in a couple minutes, I now have a live blog that utilizes github/jekyll/markdown combination. Oh my~ how hackish of me~~
