How to calculate estimated reading time
When publishing an article it is often a nice touch to let users know roughly how long it will take to read, and what level of investment they can expect to make. While every reader is different, the average reader can ingest about 150 - 200 words per minute, depending on the type of text.
Redirecting pages in jekyll (Without Plugins)
Hosting your site on Github Pages is fantastic, easy and inexpensive. Using Jekyll to generate your pages is easy and very configurable. It’s the perfect solution for a static site (as well as what I use for this blog). Sometimes, however, you may run into situations where you need to redirect a page to another page, and without access to your backend to use server-side redirects you need to do it manually.
