Setting up this website with blogdown

I have been trying for some time now to reorganize much of my workflow around Yihui Xie’s great collection of R packages around R Markdown. So when looking for a conventient way to share little tidbits of code, figures, tutorials and other random stuff I stumbled across his blogdown R package and decided to give it a try. Unsurprisingly my initial plan to briefly try it out escalated somewhat and I ended up redoing my academic website from scratch, including this blog, based on blogdown and Hugo.
