As a new dev blogger, my tool box is a little, er, sparse. I've been learning markdown, which is nice for formatting, but then I see other people's beautiful looking posts and I think - I want their tools, their methods, their flare. As part of my ascent into blogging nirvana, I thought I'd spark a discussion and see what others think.
