Initial Commit

My initial commit on the new blog. I decided to just go with blogger. I really wanted to (and almost did) write up a simple blogging tool to generate static html. In fact, I do this for my teaching websites. I was tempted to just copy my code from one of them, and go with just a clone of it for my personal site. But then I got to debating with myself. Then began the flip flopping. You know, well it'd be cool to just write up some markdown text posts and store the blog in git. But then what if I get the urge to blog and all I have is my phone. But I want to maintain all my content and don't want to give it to someone else.

So, in the end, I gave up, and just went with blogger. It has a decent android app, works great on the chromebook, I can download all my content and move it elsewhere if I choose, etc. Besides, I can always use my new favorite static website generating tools (frozen flask and flask flat pages) for plenty of other projects.

I fully intend (now that I can easily write blog posts from anywhere, even my phone), to write much much more. But, that's what all my friends say when they start blogging again, and we all know how long that usually lasts.

Well, stay tuned just in case.
