Earlier this morning I read a post authored by another Surge user Raymond Camden on how one could leverage Jekyll to build JSON files to construct rudimentary read-only JSON APIs. It occurred to me that I had accomplished this recently on my own site with the check-in map page, thus inspiring me to start writing about it!
Over the last few months I’ve been floating around the idea of creating a podcast, mainly because two things were happening in my life:
Over the last year I’ve noticed that I don’t create new posts from my mobile device like I used to when using Postach.io for my main blog. Because my needs have changed, I decided to change the tech of my site to suite those needs. Combine this with my tiredness for maintaining my year-old poorly constructed node-based blog appand you’ve got a perfect argument to switch to a Jekyll static site.
