    15 years blogging!?

    It’s an on again off again relationship, but I wasn’t aware of time.

    Almost 15 years!? Holy Internuts!

    And this is just the proof I’ve found so far. I’m sure I’ve been doing this longer.

    I’ve tried to make a good archive here, now you can expect back to 2004! Can I find even more?

    Testing Jekyll Minimum Meta

    With converting my old blogs over to MD/Jekyll - I was never really sure what the bare bones minimum meta should be.

    So - Will this post?

    Update - Yes it did. Boy was I overdoing it on the meta stuff. layout & title are all I needed. Doh!

    The Hunt for a Github Editor

    I’m liking this whoe micro blog in github thing. Only thing is, when not at a fully prepped system, or on the road it would be nice to edit. So I’m on the hunt.

    This particular little post is using Prose.io.

    Not too shabby - I like the presuggested file with date. Would have liked prefilled metadata - or something to help suggest ( let’s more honest - remember ) it.

    ok. Hitting save - to see what happens.

    update:

    The publish flag is a nice add on - but wasn’t visibile enough so had to take a second. And titles… not 100% sold on how those are working. Wasn’t as intuative. Still does the trick though.

    update 2

    So many updates before the blog is even published. You know that title thing that wasn’t intuative - well it wasn’t a title, it was a full filepath. so… really not intuative. Meta Data it is.
