I run a weekly newsletter called The .NET Stacks. If you’ve read this blog for any period of time you know this, thanks to my shameless plugs. (Feel free to subscribe!) I love it and enjoy writing it every week, but it can take up a lot of my time.

The biggest time spent is generating all the great community links. Luckily, I found a way to automate this process. I can click a button, and a console app writes all my links to my Markdown file. Then, all I have to do is fill in the rest of the newsletter.

It’s down to a two-step process, really: throughout the week, I add links to my Pinboard, then my app writes them to a Markdown file.

This post will show off how you can populate a Markdown links page using Pinboard and C#.
