-- Can port existing HTML pages and posts directly into just-a-blog with no need to reformat. (Just remember to change the extension to .md)
- Full customization - Since just-a-blog strives to be small and lightweight, editing it should be extremely easy.
+Installing is dead simple. Simply `git clone https://github.com/robertdherb/just-a-blog` in the directory you serve http pages from. You will also need to make some changes to your httpd to allow it to serve canonical URLs.
+Place markdown files in the posts/ directory. The file name should be the post's title. For instance, a post titled, "My First Post" should be in the file posts/my-first-post.md.
+Pages work the same, but are placed in the pages/ directory.
+Do not delete pages/home.md. Alter it however you like, but it needs to exist.
+Posts are sorted by last edit time. This moves recently edited posts to the top of the list. This may or may not be a desirable outcome for you.
+ - I never commited Parsedown.html, so be sure to do that some time.
+ - Make it easier to siwtch cannonical URLs on and off
