Hello World!

I am incredibly happy to finally have a personal website and blog up and running. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time. But things - primarily procrastination - often get in the way.

It’s bare-bones, but I love how it looks. It’s also completely static, powered by Jekyll. As a huge fan of minimalist design, Pixyll was a perfect theme to quick-start with. Future themes will be my own designs. Hopefully.

I discovered Jekyll while crawling the interwebz, trying to decide which framework to use for a blog. It took a couple of days to get used to, but it’s probably much easier than experimenting with back-end frameworks and definitely more lightweight than a full-fledged CMS. Not to forget, it generates static pages and hence, lightning fast loading time!

Apart from Jekyll, I used

And of course, Jekyll websites can use free hosting on GitHub Pages.

There are plenty of websites that use and love Jekyll. Yours should too!
