“Patience is a virtue”, I just needed to wait long enough and the CNAME and DNS changes resolved themselves. I was able to successfully push my change and see it updated.

So with any conversion it is always good to do a retrospective of the product you are converting from.
First what did I use before Jekyll? Well the blog engine I wrote is located:
I’ve had several versions, but that one used Sqlite to store the blogs, I had a live editor and supported multiple publications.
- Live editing
- As the sole user, and developer I could do whatever I wanted
- Ability to query blogs
- As the sole user, and developer all features had to be developed by me
- Maintaining another repo takes time from other more interesting projects
With Jeykll I don’t have to maintain the code for the engine and I can focus on content generation.
There are many themes available for Jekyll as well, but I’m going to stick with the one it shipped with for now rather than playing with the settings. It was a common joke for people to spend more time configuring mods for Skyrim than actually playing the game. I tend to like to try out the stock version of things until I find a feature missing. Once I have used the product more I can better evaluate additions. When I play table top roleplaying games I like to start with the core rules until I find a good reason to change.
