### Blogger posting with Markdown using StackEdit

I recently discovered StackEdit, a tool for writing and previewing Markdown.

Now, I’ve been using Markdown for quite sometime, it’s useful for everything from electronic lab notebooks to taking notes on informational interviews.

Finally, through StackEdit’s built-in post to Blogger feature, I’m able to abandon the clunky default interface, and write posts the way they were meant to be written!

Additional benefits include easy code snippets…

def stackedit():
print 'I love your product!'

Easy inspirational quotes…

“Perfection is Achieved Not When There Is Nothing More to Add, But When There Is Nothing Left to Take Away”

And easy equations (same syntax as LaTeX$LaTeX$, by the way)…

ΔG=12kBTln(Keq)$\Delta G = \frac{1}{2} k_\mathrm{B} T ln(K_\textrm{eq})$

Needless to say, I’m excited about the switch, and would highly recommend giving StackEdit a try yourself!
