Recently I made the decision to switch my website to github pages and make use of jekyll. Since my website is nothing more than a blog I felt that paying for full hosting seemed to be a waste of money seeing that I use the server for nothing else.
Jekyll provides more than enough functionality for my simple needs and is a flimsy excuse to use a new technology. This also provides me with a chance to brush up on my very limited CSS skill.
For now the site will simply stay as my personal blog but I suspect that I will expand it to a portfolio site if being a freelancer works out for me.
