Thanks for getting in here!
For the initial post, I’m gonna write all the things I’m using to build this blog. As many things I intend to write, nothing magical.
Just to start, in my about page I explain the reasons why I’m writing this blog.
Being a blog focused in software development, I thought it will be cool to use something new for me to learn and post about it. So, I decided to use Jekyll.
Googling a little more, I found this really cool platform built on top of Jekyll: Octopress, a blogging framework for hackers. So far, everything that was needed was simple just by following its documentation. As a developer, I’m feeling some freedom to customize and use it. Fast and clean!
To do my about page, I’ve followed these simple steps.
As a theme for my blog, I’m using this really nice one. If you to know more, see more themes here.
I bought this domain at Godaddy and configure it using nice post.
For analytics, I’ve created an account at Google Analytics, but to add it, i’m using Segment.IO. This way, I can add more analytics without increasing my page size.
All of this writing is being made in Sublime Text using the Markdown plugin.
As I said, I don’t want to show complete solutions, but if you use just one of this links, it’ll be worth of doing it :)
Here’s a print screen of my editor writing this post:
