I’ve been using the Copy as Markdown browser extension quite a bit lately. It’s great I’m trying to capture existing website pages and convert them to Markdown. While it was meant just to copy single links or images as Markdown, It has really been expanded to copy entire content pages as Markdown.

As of that time, I was unaware of an effort, first documented on April 27th, to use GitHub Actions to deploy a Jekyll site to GitHub Pages.

Over the past several weeks I’ve hinted that I may move my website, JasonGaylord.com, over to GitHub Pages. I wanted to do this for a few reasons. The biggest reason was to focus more on delivering content and posts and less on the way something looked and how it worked. CloudScribe is a great .NET Core CMS that offers a lot of flexibility in a full featured website. However, that’s not the needs of my personal site.Read More
