New Blog

New Blog, New Me

It’as been a while since I have put a personal blog together, but I think this might be the motivation that I need to finally do it. I have set everything up to make it as easy as possible to add new content to this. All of my blog posts will be in markdown and saved to a repo on github. Who knows? Maybe the commit streak in and of itself will be enough to keep me motivated to keep posting. Some topics I am looking forward to posting:

  1. Supercon Badge
    • Adding I2C HW
    • Communicating w/ I2C HW
  2. Kubernetes/kubeadm setup
  3. Keezer build
  4. Keezer Electronics (Arduino/CircuitPy)
  5. Woodshop build
  6. Music Making

Conclusion

Before I write too much, I should draw this to a close to save some energy for the next time I write on here, which should be soon. Hopefully.

Welcome to Jekyll!

You’ll find this post in your _posts directory. Go ahead and edit it and re-build the site to see your changes. You can rebuild the site in many different ways, but the most common way is to run jekyll serve, which launches a web server and auto-regenerates your site when a file is updated.

To add new posts, simply add a file in the _posts directory that follows the convention YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.ext and includes the necessary front matter. Take a look at the source for this post to get an idea about how it works.
