Looking for an opportunity to play around with Git, Markdown and Jekyll, I have decided to move this site from ExpressionEngine (EECMS) - which I love and use on most projects - to Jekyll, a static site generator.

Generally, I don’t use the command line to interact with my version controlled client accounts. In most cases, I prefer to use Tower, a great Git client for Mac and Windows but in the case of gbradhopkins.com, I decided to use the command line as a way of becoming more familiar with it. Below are the basic commands that I use to push content to my Github account.

I’ve always been a big fan of the MacHeist deals. The newest bundle (nanoBundle 3) is a great little bundle of apps for $10. Unfortunately, for me, most of the apps that I would want, I already own.

Need a quick way to toggle between tabs in Safari (or, pretty much any other browser) using keyboard shortcuts?

I’m a big fan of and use it on most all of the sites that I build. I recently installed a Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) to a site of mine and was hoping to use Google Analytics to track the searches that were performed on the site in the Google CSE.
