Blog Introduction

Welcome to the initial post of this blog. I want to having something for my own domain to point to, and I think this is the simplest method of doing that.

Who Am I?

My name is Stephen Childs. I work as an Senior Institutional Analyst in the Office of Institutional Planning and Analysis (OIPA) at York University. I am a Carpentries certified instructor and have taught Software Carpentry workshops at York University.

In my spare time, I play pen-and-paper Role Playing Games.

Blog Plan

I found a tutorial for setting up a Pelican site, and I am going to use that to start the blog.

It is quite easy to go from running the pelican-quickstart command to pushing the blog to NearlyFreeSpeech.NET Web Hosting.

In order for the style to work, you need to have the domain activated. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly that happened.
