    As you may be able to tell, I’m back to using Jekyll. This is hardly the first time or even the second Why do i keep switching? Ghost, which I’ve been using since I launched this site is great. It has by far the best interface I’ve ever seen for writing. I just always want something different.

The reason I keep coming back to Jekyll is that I like having all of my blog posts as text files. I work with databases every day, so I have no issues working with them. I just prefer having text files that I can do whatever I want with. I also really like the format that Jekyll uses. I’ve looked at other static site generators and I just don’t like the way that they work.

The one thing that I always miss when I go to Jekyll is having some sort of web interface. I do occasionally like to write from my iPad or iPhone and its pretty handy to have an interface that I can use. Unfortunately, I haven’t found anything that will work for this purpose. Maybe I should do something about that.

This is a fairly basic site at the moment. Its just the default setup from running jekyll new. I’ll be making changes over the coming weeks. Hopefully, I didn’t break anything. Let me know if you see something broken and I’ll get it fixed.
