Why am I moving my blog to GitHub! -- Again.

March 12, 2017

Reason #1: I want to be able to write blogs even when I don’t have an internet connection

Reason #2: I want to be able to use emojis in my blog

  • :sweat_smile: :+1: :musical_note:

    :smiley_cat: :scream_cat: :dog:

    :arrow_left: :arrow_right: :arrow_up:

Reason #3: Writing code on GitHub flavored Markdown is simpler

  • JavaScript code
      function test() {
          console.log("test");
      }
    
  • C# code
      using System;
    
      public class Circle : Shape
      {
          private double radius;
    
          public Circle(double radius)
          {
              this.radius = radius;
          }
    
          public double Radius
          {
              get { return this.radius;}
              set { this.radius = value;}
          }
    
          override public double ComputeArea() 
          { 
              return Math.PI * Math.Pow(radius, 2);
          }
      }
    

Reason #4: My current blog has a weird name

  • jboyflaga2.blogspot.com. Yes! With a “2” at the end. It sounds unprofessional. :blush:

    You want to know the reason why there is a “2” in there?? It is because the one without the “2” is already taken. I believe I was the one who made that blog years ago but I already deleted the google account assoiciated with it. But even if I did not delete it, I already forgot the password. :disappointed:

    But my first blog, jeremiahflaga.blogspot.com, already uses my real name… only that reasons #1, #2, & #3 prevents me from using it also.

    (I also attempted to create a blog named teacherjboy.blogspot.com, but its name sounds very controversial. :laughing::laughing::laughing: I cannot continue using it.)
