The Markdown language is a written language created to help writers write more efficiently, specifically on the internet. I think it’s great. It’s what I use for all my notes, on GitHub, writing these blog posts and others. It’s simple (sort of) and rather efficient once you get used to it. Here’s why I believe […]Continue reading
This is a rather nerdy post, so bear with me here. Many of us use WordPress for our websites, which for the most part is great.
