Experiment: gist as a blogging platform

Experiment: gist as a blogging platform

Am I crazy? Perhaps. But why shouldn't we use gist as a blogging platform?

What it has going for it

  • support for comments
  • renders markdown
  • support for multiple files, so code examples can be attached as well as inline
  • automatic indexing by search engines
  • versioning
  • free

What it has going against it

  • not great discoverability, because people don't look on gist for blog entries
  • not a great URL

The experiment

Consider this a first post on the topic, which I will expand over time. Feel free to add a comment below in the meantime.
