With this new lease on blogging, I wanted to start somewhere that made blogging easier. I’ve only ever really blogged on Wordpress and it was less than pleasant an experience for me. I’ve been meaning to try using git and vim to write a blog but never had gotten round to it. Now this is not written in vim. I’ve discovered that the markdown preview in Pycharm is really good and so I’m using that for the instant feedback on how it’s going to look on the page.
So, what did I learn?
Also, it’s a lot of fun to work this way. Freeing yourself of the mindset of writing all in one go and allowing your thoughts to finish and treating each post as an on going work feels much more natural when it’s version controlled.
