Thank You Github
Yesterday’s post was apparently pretty popular. If you look at the image below, you’ll see that over the past 24 hours (there’s no timestamp, so just trust me), I had 9,001 visits and 10,101 page views. Given that my previous high was around 50, I’m a little excited.
As some of you may remember from Monday’s post, I’m a fan of separating content from style. This is where Github comes in. I’m hosting my blog there using mojombo’s jekyll, a static site generator written in Ruby.
Much of what I like about showoff is what I like about jekyll as well. When I’m working on the content, there’s nothing else on my mind. It’s just me, a terminal, and this post. I’m able to focus on what I want to say with no other distractions. As a bonus, Github’s pages service will generate a static copy and host it for me. This meant no headaches yesterday. I was free to happily watch my traffic grow. Thanks Github, you make life better in so many ways.blog comments powered by Disqus
