This is my first blog post using this framework, and y’all are free to grab this and use it to build out your own blog as well.

There are a few rules to go by as you build out your blog!

Once you’ve cloned this repository:

  1. Use the Jekyll Installation Docs and Jekyll docs to get up and running with Jekyll on your machine.

  2. You’ll begin by adding new posts in the _posts directory.

  3. Every new post must follow the convention and include the necessary front matter (the content listed in the top of the post).

  4. Use the front matter of the second blog post as a template until you remember the formula.

  5. In order to view live changes, run jekyll s, which launches a web server.

If you need to embed code, Jekyll also offers powerful support for code snippets:

def print_hi(name)
  puts "Hi, #{name}"
#=> prints 'Hi, Emily!' to STDOUT.

Happy blogging!
