I never really thought about making a blog, until a friend asked me how to make one. I have settled on the use of Jekyll for creating my site due to its intergration with Github Pages and use of markdown language.

As someone who (now having discovered markdown) has started to dislike the complexity and clutter of a program like microsoft word, this solution is near perfect. It allows me to litterally copy and paste my work into a blog post and it just work!1

Look pretty \(\LaTeX\) support with MathJax!

\[\begin{align*} & \phi(x,y) = \phi \left(\sum_{i=1}^n x_ie_i, \sum_{j=1}^n y_je_j \right) = \sum_{i=1}^n \sum_{j=1}^n x_i y_j \phi(e_i, e_j) = \\ & (x_1, \ldots, x_n) \left( \begin{array}{ccc} \phi(e_1, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_1, e_n) \\ \vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\ \phi(e_n, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_n, e_n) \end{array} \right) \left( \begin{array}{c} y_1 \\ \vdots \\ y_n \end{array} \right) \end{align*}\]

and Images.
