I have a homepage. It is using a CSS template heavily modified from a theme from Google Pages, which has long been discontinued. This template has been used for the SAMtools website among a few others. I still like the general look-and-feel of the template, but I do have a few concerns with my homepage. Firstly, I do not like to write raw HTML, as is opposed to MarkDown. Secondly, as a novice web developer, I still have troubles with fine tuning the CSS template. Thirdly and most importantly, I am unable to get feedbacks from readers. While there are services like Disqus, I am too lazy to learn how to integrate them. After all, I am a scietific researcher. Due to these concerns, I have not updated my homepage often in the past few years.

On the other hand, I sometimes feel it is necessary to describe my preliminary works and express my immature thoughts in short articles. Maybe some of them could be useful to others as well. Blog posts seem a good way to achieve the goal. This is why I started this blog. I do not know where it goes or if I will update often, but a little bit more documentation is better than nothing, I believe.
