As the setup of my blog requires creating a markdown file that follows a special template, I kept finding excuses to not write anything, because I had to perform a few awkward steps:
- copy an existing post file,
- change the date to near future,
- fill it with new content and finally,
- publish it.
It felt dirty and unelegant, so I implemented an option in blogger that prints out a specific template, be it a post or a snippet, which includes a header filled with time set to 15 minutes in the future, an example title and chosen author. My obsession for clean technical solutions to first-world problems is satisfied and blogging is fun again!
