So you wrote an article in Markdown and you want to publish it with a minimum of fuss. GistLog is exactly what you need. Create a public gist with your article, set the gist's description to be the article's title, and add the .md file extension to the file name. Paste then the gist's URL into GistLog, hit Create, and the system generates a nicely-formatted article complete with the commenting functionality (see an example article generated by GistLog).

When you publish several articles with GistLog, you might want to list them all in one place, and GistLog allows you to create a landing page for that. Read the Introducing Gistlog landing pages article to find out how you set your own GistLog landing page. GistLog's source code is available on GitHub, so you can host it on your own server.
