I have been writing on the Internet in some capacity since 2014. This article explains by current blogging setup, which is excellent for anyone that wants a minimalist blog template combined with the version control capabilities of GitHub.

My Background as a Writer

I have been writing on the Internet in some capacity since 2014.

My first website was  www.financialcanadian.com (which no longer exists), a financial education blog for Canadians that I started writing while I was an investment management intern at the Toronto-Dominion Bank. That website was built using the Wordpress content management system (CMS) and hosted on Bluehost. I chose Wordpress for its ease of use and Bluehost for its low cost.

After that, I joined Sure Dividend as President and, later, Chief Technology Officer. That website also used the Wordpress CMS. On several side projects, I have also experimented with Wix, Squarespace, Django, Sanity, and Webflow.

All in all, I have experience with most of the major blogging platforms. For a basic blog like this one whose primary purpose is to share ideas, each one of these content management systems presented problems:

  • Some were slow because of the wide array of plugins required to make them work like I wanted.
  • Most relied on technologies that I was unfamiliar with (like PHP), which made customizing my templates difficult. It was not worthwhile to learn these technologies for the sole purpose of customizing my theme.
  • All lacked an easy-to-use version control system that allowed me to see how my blog posts were modified over time, and allow the public to suggest changes in a centralized location.
  • After working with and on open source software, I wanted the ‘GitHub’ of blog content.

I have now set up a blog publication system that solves each of these problems. This article will explain how.

Stay Safe on GitHub: Security Practices to Follow

As developers in this deeply interconnected community use open source code to build software, Github security should be a top priority. This is because extensive code re-use increases the risk of distributing vulnerabilities from one dependency or repository to another. As such, every contributor should focus on creating a secure development environment. Here are eight security practices that GitHub users can follow to stay safe and protect their code:
