For a while I’ve been meaning to create a place to write up various projects I’ve worked on, or the occasional other topic. Well, here it is!

Google+ and similar site work great for sharing posts, but I wanted something with better formatting and image embedding opportunities to allow more detailed write-ups.

I initially considered using Github Pages, since it’s based around git and Markdown, thus is really simple to set up and use. However, I soon decided I’d rather host it myself, since I already have my own web server. Besides, the engine behind Github pages is Jekyll, and I can quite easily run that myself and get essentially the exact same feature set.
