First post with the Jekyll blog system which uses plain old markdown files. The beauty of this is that Github understands Jekyll and automatically runs
jekyll build on the site and serves it after every push.
Any pictures or linked files are stored in the assets folder.
Note I have some sample blogs already in here - these were not written by me but are just some dummy entries for testing.
Adding a new line here to test Github commits as they were not causing Jekyll to rebuild!
