Updated web site
A couple of months ago, I decided it was time to redo my website. So, in an exercise to learn something new in the process, I’ve redone my site using Octopress, a simple blogging framework built on Jekyll. Although you can use a number of services to power it, Github works really well (plus it’s free). Since I’d already implemented a site for my song lyrics using Github Pages, I wanted to dig into this service a little more. It also gave me the chance to dip my toes into the world of Ruby, which I hope to learn more about at this year’s Code4Lib conference.
This was also my first time building a responsive web site. I won’t argue that it’s absolutely, totally, one hundred percent successful, but it was a good exercise in thinking differently about web development and usability.
