Goodbye Octopress, Hello Jekyll

It wasn't long ago that I got my octopress blog up and running nicely. For those of you who don't know, Octopress is a framework for Jekyll which is a static website generator. Since then, I've fallen in love with static website publishing. The fact that I can write my posts in markdown and push them up to github to update my blog has been a wonderful thing. I love having direct access to all of my posts as well. I know I can use them in whatever way I wish and that I'm not tied to a 3rd party service. Needless to say, I'm a fan of static site publishing.

A New Year — Some New Goals

It is hard to believe that 2014 has already come upon us. Every year it seems we make comments about how time flies. Indeed it does. Last year was a fantastic year for me. January 2013 was the month I started to code. Since then, I've coded up a few projects since then. But alas, I still have so much more to learn. I'd like to begin this year by setting some goals that I would like to accomplish in 2014.
