So how does this site work? Basically, instead of getting fancy-pants with WordPress, PHP, and other server-side languages; you simply host your website with GitHub Pages. Then Jekyll (“a static site generator”) combines templates with content that you write in Markdown, and spews forth perfect, ready-to-upload little files ✨.
Free, Flexible, Future-proof. Platforms like Medium, Quora, Revue may eventually shut down or hold you hostage to fees; whereas this solution is the happy opposite…because “plain text is forever”.
