After trying out blogspot/blogger for a while, I realized it is not ideal for a code blog. Micke pointed me to the solution created by Tom Preston-Werner, which looked perfect for my needs. Simple and very flexible, and since I sit all day in front of my terminal typing git commands, the work flow is also very familiar ;)
Tom's post about the motivation for creating Jekyll (the site generator used to power the blog) is spot on: Blogging Like a Hacker.
So, I have moved over the posts from my old blog, and new posts will only appear here. See you!
