I had been meaning to create a personal website for some time now and it's finally here!
I've had this domain up and running a Ruby on Rails app hosted on Heroku, but it was more than what I needed for a personal site. I never got much further than making an alternate homepage for myself about my best friend. Finally, I had some convincing to really get the site going, thanks to Middleman. I was introduced to Middleman by a friend who had hung out with him before. I found out that Middleman helps you generate static sites via Ruby and the Sinatra web framework. After realizing that I could create a free custom static blog site with the help of Middleman and Github, I became close friends with Middleman. We are besties now.
