A fresh start (again)

Harry Fisher

I have made a couple of attempts to get a consistent blog going, however all have failed for one reason or another. This is my latest attempt which was inspired by the great distill package by the Rstudio team. I often found I would spend a disproportionate amount of time fiddling with how the site looked, rather than putting time and effort into the content. Distill provides a clean and simple style which really appealed to me straight out of the box, so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to focus more on the content this time around. I have a few ideas in the pipeline that I’ll hopefully share over the coming months.

Will this time be different? Only time will tell…
