Sam Soffes and his static Jekyll blog

Sam Soffes Jekyll’s a little differently.

This iteration is built on top of Jekyll, a static site generator written in Ruby.

Since I write my posts differently than Jekyll expects, I had to write several plugins to make things work correctly. You might wonder why I don’t just write my posts the way Jekyll wants instead of doing all of this work. I want to keep the details of my blogging engine separate from my content.

I’d love to hear from you about your blogging stack in the discussion below. Like Sam, I’m also using Jekyll hosted on Netlify, but I’m new to his plugins.
