Setting Up A Blog With Jekyll And Github

Having recently read a bunch of end-of-year blog posts (linked from Jeremy Keith’s), I decided it’s about time I started a blog of some sort.

Having already enjoyed using Jekyll to build a static web site and blog for OMERO.figure I opted to go for the same approach for this site, including hosting on github. I used a nice blog post on jekyll with github pages as a guide to setting up.

One cool feature I’m using for the first time is the Disqus site to support comments on this static site, as described in the above post.

All I have to do now is think of something to blog about!
