testing out markdown

So the idea is to write a blog post entirely in Markdown and using the web app stackedit.io.[^Okay, I lied, I’m using the Notebooks iPhone app as well]

I have never written in Markdown before[^Another lie, whilst writing this blogpost I have since written another one about a Kickstarter project I recently backed.] but have read a couple of articles online.

I have constantly heard mention of Markdown in productivity blogs, podcasts and even tumblr, but I have to admit that I have never really gotten into it.

I blame this on the official Markdown website. The layout was a bit dry for me and there was way too much text. Something like this primer worked much better for me.[^Can I just say, at this point of the article, I am finding Markdown’s simple way of adding URL links to text to be a major time-saver]

iOS apps like DayOne Journal supports Markdown (unfortunately it does not have a PC version) and it’ll be interesting to see how many of my current apps would recognise the syntax.
