    Going to write in Markdown for a couple days. Let's see how it compares to my HTML and Textexpander scripts!

      @klug make sure to use Markdown snippets as appropriate, too: http://brettterpstra.com/projects/te-tools/ Plus, for a previewer, I highly recommend @ttscoff's Marked. It's fantastic.

        @longstride Awesome, thanks for the info. I am really excited to give it a try. I was elated to see that the blog tool my company uses supports it. It seems simple. I hope, too, that it makes editing with links, etc, easier.

          @klug I think it's much easier than any WYSIWYG editor or using straight HTML. On a Mac? If so, here's a very handy quick reference to reduce your learning curve: http://dashkards.com/markdown Even if you're not on a Mac, you can still save the image.

            @longstride Awesome, super handy. What I like about it in my first 24 hours is how I can still use my old HTML signature and other saved snips. Do you edit everything in markdown?

              @klug Everything I personally write is in Markdown and I encourage my clients to do the same. Some do, some don’t. It makes a lot of sense for blogs. Even the platforms that don’t natively support Markdown accept HTML, which Marked easily converts for you.

                @longstride Absolutely loving it. Two years of writing HTML I'm glad to be done with it (even though TextExpander made things a whole lot easier). Thanks for all the tips!
