I've moved! From Blogger to Pelican
I've used Blogger for quite some time and have enjoyed my experience with it. But over time, I've found that I needed a professional website that I had built myself. I wanted something quick, easy and familiar, so Django wouldn't have worked for me (Mezzanine and DjangoCMS can be challenging as well) and Flask was just too flexible for what I needed. I remembered someone at a meetup talking about their work on Pelican, a static site generator. I had seen examples of other static sites (I believe Cloud Guru servers their site like this) and after looking through the documentation, I decided to give it a try. Pelican relies on markdown or restructured text to build it's files. If you have experience writing readme.md files, creating a blog is a snap! I'm launching this side by side with a new project of mine, deployed for the first time, www.hashtagbrews.com. I'll periodically refer to this project in some of my other blogs as it has been a great source of new material to write about. I'm hoping to get some Ruby and C programming content in the next few weeks. Very excited! Stay tuned!
