Minimal Blogging

I already have a “real” blog using WordPress that I’ve posted to on and off for a few years.

I discovered just over a year ago and tried to use it as my Project 365 destination. I did it for a while, but it was several extra steps, so I abandoned it.

However, I’ve always liked the minimal interface of It allows you to really focus on writing and your message. I’m also an old programmer (as in from a long time ago, not age; OK, maybe a little bit age too) … so I enjoy using Markdown to format my posts (note: has a tool you can enable to use rich formatting instead of Markdown if you’d rather).

Anyway, as I embark on the 100 Days to Offload challenge and write every day for 100 days, I’m going to test a few things out on I do wish there was commenting more readily available (they’re working on a commenting system). But, I’m hoping that this will post to Mastodon and then discussions could happen there if needed. Trial and error … we’ll see.
