was my first web professional presence after graduating.

I originally launched the site in the spring of 2015 without a CMS but quickly realised updating it without any automation was going to be a major chore. Initially I was looking to use WordPress, but Jekyll’s approach of generating only static HTML pages, free hosting on GitHub and versatility made me change my mind. I also felt like I could learn more by creating everything from scratch instead of being tempted to use a free WordPress template. Not that there aren’t free Jekyll templates but I felt it was easier to create something from scratch using Jekyll rather than WordPress.
