I started exploring Jekyll and soon with a few tweaks I had a basic structure that progressively ended up to this site. I was already using GitHub Pages for my old static websites, so Jekyll was a good go with easy deployment and pushing updates. It's built for blog, is flexible, and more importantly open source. A perfect combination I was looking for. I'm using sidey for the blog, siema for the slider, and lightbox for lightbox.
Here, I plan to post about things I'm working on, thinking of, and intermittently my personal experiences (self talk) in the form of text and visuals, mostly text. I'm also trying to make this a documentation space for work (basically portfolio) and thoughts that I don't want to fade away from my memory but eventually they do, to make me look back and feel nostalgic about how stupid/brilliant I was in the past(assuming we both will be alive). I'm not a very social (or social media) person, and I always wanted to have my own small space on the crowded web where I can express without pressure and can have control over the content I post. I hope to be regular and make at least one or more posts a month depending on what is happing in that month. There are more things that I keep telling myself to justify my actions, but I guess, for now, this much seems convincing. Let's see how it goes. :)
