Blog updates since November

2013-01-24 1 min read

    In November, I migrated my Tumblr and Wordpress blogs over to GitHub pages and have been making a few tweaks here and there. I started with the awesome Jekyll-Bootstrap library but wanted to share the changes I’ve made. It’s all hosted on GitHub so feel free to fork it.

    • Design changes
      • The version I started with didn’t have the Bootstrap responsiveness library so I added that in
      • Since I’m using it primarily as a blog, I updated the design to emphasize the blog aspect
      • Consolidated the pagination and social sharing widget to fit on one line
      • Incorporated some best practices from Kaikkonen's blog typography guide
    • Backend changes
      • Small improvements to SEO by giving ability to add keywords to each page
      • Added Open Graph meta tags to control what’s displayed when people share the page on Facebook
      • Made a few tweaks to the way the sitemap was being generated
