Changing How I Blog

I stumbled upon Jekyll a few weeks ago after reading a post from its creator, Tom Preston-Werner. Jekyll helps me to blog the way I write code and for the time being, that is a good thing. The little blogging monster also integrates with GitHub via GitHub Pages. I love Git so having a hosted, version-controlled website and blog made immediate sense. The site starts out as a repository and you are looking at the result.

Changing My Hosting

Canadian Web Hosting has been phenomenal for Virtual Private Server hosting. Unfortunately, I have not been watching the Studio’s bottom line closely enough. As such, I will be turning off our VPS and working on ways to make more money so I can use them again soon.

The Studio site pencilcasestudios.com will redirect to pencilcasetudios.github.com while I clean up and finally turn off the VPS in the coming days. Please update your bookmarks.

If there are any errors with the site or redirection you can submit an issue and I’ll get cracking on it.

Changing My Income Streams

You can help the Studio grow by donating specifically to our Open Source projects on GitHub or to on our general campaign on Pledgie. The donation badge looks like this:

I figured that if I asked (nicely!), I may get a few helping hands.

Hope you find the changes useful.
