I’m Rick, and Killring is a simple site that serves as a clearinghouse for my writing and research. Posts are often essay-length writings, so they can be infrequent and sometimes quite long, depending on the topic.
I’m an Emacs user, which perhaps explains why I thought Killring was sort of a neat name for my blog. Back when I used a CMS for my site (Wordpress), I’d draft all my posts in Emacs and then cut-and-paste them into the web editor for my site, so every post passed through the Emacs kill ring. I mused one day that it might be neat to write a hook that detected really large kills in Emacs and automatically send them to my blog, effectively making the kill ring a blogging platform. I made this site instead.
In 2016, I moved to Hugo for its blinding speed, in hopes that reducing the friction between writing and publishing would facilitate more writing.
