- I really like the idea of writing in Markdown in my favorite editor, not using some web interface (yes I’ve tried Wordpress. As good as HTML editors have gotten, I am always fighting against them.
- Github is awesome and github pages are free.
- I can control the the look of the blog pretty easily, and just add pages as I want.
As you can see from the footer, the blog is static pages powered by Jekyll using the neat Jekyll-Bootstrap framework.
