Hello, world!

Welcome to my new blog! I’ve been working on this for a few weeks off and on, and recently came to a point where I felt like it was deployable.

I started working on this after a conversation at one of our somewhat weekly OpenHacks meetups, where I was called out on not having a blog; even though I have a tendency to tell our local learners that they should start one.

After a little bit of thought I decided I’d write a blog app that reflects my ideal writing area. While I’m not much of a designer, I wanted to keep things simple.

Here’s a couple of screenshots:

Oh, and it’s open source.

I took some inspiration from Svbtle and Draftin while making this; both are in my opinion great examples of simple designs. I wanted an editor where there wouldn’t really be any elements that would distract me, and a clean interface. Not to say some things that do this don’t already exist. I wanted to do it myself, my way.

Now that I have this in production I hope to write more often so I can improve my writing skills, and write about the random things I make.
