Moved from Blogger to Github Pages

15 Feb 2014

Blogger just wasn’t fitting my needs anymore. I wanted more control over my design and I really liked using Markdown for my editing. I started researching static site generators. Jekyll looked good with an added bonus that I could get it hosted on Github. Win Win.

Nearly a year ago I decided to create this program that would convert my blogger templates to a generic XML file. With minimal tweaking I got it to export markdown files instead.

That got me 80% of the way. I went post by post and reviewed them for formatting issues.
