« It's running now!
Well, it was not too
straightforward, but I did it. The goal was to run "the blog", which would be very minimalistic and simple, neither will require me to think much. As I keep my notes in plain text, basically in Dropbox
(which gives me quite a good feel of my notes been everywhere), I thought it'd be a good idea to do the same with the blog. None of the existing solutions, like Blogger, or Tumblr, or even recently acquired by Twitter Posterous
- they are simple and nice, but I do not feel them "minimalistic". They used to be (or may be tried to pretend to be), but definitely not anymore.
So I tried something else. Decision was simple - GitHub Pages
. You can have it free. It uses Jekyll
behind the scene to actually generate all the static content. You create everything as simple as you want. And here we go - the source of my blog is right here https://github.com/alexeypro/alexeypro.github.com
- I keep it open, and will do my best to keep it as minimalistic as possible, so don't hesitate to take a look and steal pieces of it. And design is kept dumb and simple by intention. I like it.
