Just a Test Blog Post

This is a test; this is only a test

This is just a simple test of a Jekyll-powered blog. Nothing to see here. Move along, please! Like really, no need to click on this post or read it or anything. You’ll just disappoint yourself.

You’re bad at following directions

But that’s okay. This post is simply to serve as a testing ground for blog post features and whatnot.



Have a parrot for your troubles. Better yet, have a parrot in a figure with a figcaption for nicer layout!


A pretty parrot

See, isn’t that nice. You can also put them halvsies (.half) or… thirdsies (.third)?

I really hope you don’t have light- or motion-sensitivity or something, because this page is becoming painful.

Ooh, circle crops could come in handy, especially if we’re featuring a developer’s mug or something. Let’s give that a go down below with a .circle class:


It’s a beautiful circle of… something

And we can make sure wider images are constrained to the width of the content (not the wider page width) with a simple .constrained class:


It’s big, but like, smaller

And lastly, we can go full bleed if we want with the appropriately-named .full-bleed class:


My god, it's full of stars!

Other stuff

Okay, that’s enough of that. What else can we do? How about a table, using the familiar GitHub syntax:

First Header Second Header
Content Cell Content Cell
Content Cell Content Cell

Neat! I’m sure we can spruce those up a bit more later. Now, let’s try to embed a post. This will be interesting…

Okay so that was a little more complicated than I’d like, but it actually works. Neato 🌯️.

But wait, there’s more!
