Welcome to My New Blog

As you can see from the layout, I have switched my blog hosting. I previously had a WordPress site on 000webhost, but I did not like it. It was slow and sometimes the connections would time out while I was trying to make changes. WordPress is a great and easy solution for a blog but it did not offer markdown support for posts, which is something that I wanted in case I wanted to add code examples.

My new solution is using Jekyll, self-hosted here at blog.jwhite.network. I also have an atom feed for my blog available at blog.jwhite.network/feed.xml.

There was a learning process with how Jekyll operates as well customizing a theme to my liking but I am happy with the end result. One thing that I do not like currently is the lack of security with my new blog. SSL works and fine but creating CSP policy that both works well without breaking my site is a work in progress. I look forward to continuing to work on my site to make it more secure and blogging about cool cyber-related things.
