Blogging again

Iโ€™ve been wrestling with the idea of moving to a blogdown site rather than having a handful of static pages squatting in a github page. After hemming and hawwing about it, Iโ€™ve finally set up a hugo blog, found a nice theme and a way of pushing the changes up. Disqus comments arenโ€™t working yet but Iโ€™m figuring out how to get that, so that itโ€™s actually possible to engage in a discussion.

The major themes for the blog, like my old Wordpress site, will be research, teaching and collections of interesting links. Iโ€™ve downloaded the XML tree for the old Wordpress blog and am looking at tools for converting them to markdown files so that I can port them across. If thereโ€™s no simple way of automating it, I might just pick out the greatest hits and pull them across manually.
