What is this?

Fri Feb 10 2023

The fun part of blogging is messing around with the blogging platform. But once you’ve done that, you have to fill it with content.


I had a few articles about Git and Markdown on this domain, but I also had the pborenstein.dev domain (because all the cool kids have a .dev domain), and I wanted to use it. So I moved all the technical stuff about Git, Markdown, and Eleventy, over there. An article about collections seems to be the most popular.

Now I need some content.

I’ve done the Re-Launch Your Blog with a Shiny New Platform project several times over the years. This time I am using Eleventy, which is a lot of fun. It has a lot of hooks you can play with.

For each time I did the Shiny New Platform project, there must be about half a dozen posts, some going back to the year 2000. That’s what you’ll be seeing here.

It will be embarrassing.
