Today I'm playing with rendering my blog's webmentions as part of my Jekyll build by first caching them from using and then pulling the json data in to Jekyll as a Git submodule -- exposing them as in Jekyll.

Apparently this will be fine

Wish me luck! 🙈

Nothing like proofreading a blog post to make you realise you over-use commas. I think it might be time to invest in a shock collar or something...
