The struggle I was facing trying to work with Jekyll was site updates. The constant need to have a terminal window open to update my site. Well I found a solution.

The reality check is, that I’m not writing a post every minute, so I don’t need jekyll serve to be constantly monitoring my site for updates. For a solution, a cron job that checks and rebuilds my site every 30 minutes. So far so good. This seems like a pleasing solution for my work flow in updating this site.

Updated: Well cron seems like a fail. Dang it.
