Over the years, I have bounced between publishing tools. Squarespace was limited and expensive. WordPress was overkill and cheap. Tumblr was bought by Verizon. This time I wanted a simple site, and quickly decided on Jekyll and GitHub Pages as the way to make that happen. To repeat a common refrain in my life, “We will see how it goes.”

I am starting fresh. There is no compelling reason to bring along the cruft of my previous blog attempts. The process matters more than the artefacts. Would a historian agree?
