Jekyll Blog Helper (JBH) Status Update

Work is still moving forward on Release 1.3.0 of JBH. There are currently 3 issues that I will need to complete in order to get the release out the door. These issues are: 1) Add ability to stage to server for future post updates This feature appears to be functionally complete at this time.

One of the things you quickly realize with a static website generator like Jekyll is that there is often no good tools to actually manage your content.

Let's try this blogging thing again

Let’s try this blogging thing again, shall we? I used to be pretty good about blogging but over the years I let it slip away. I setup a new blog platform a couple years ago but i never actually posted anything. I guess we will see how this round goes. Hopefully, I can get into a better habbit this time around and actually stick to it. I know I have plenty of topics I can share with everyone.
