Background I’ve started a PhD! This has given me yet another reason to up my markdown game and this week I submitted my first abstract written in Rmarkdown. I’m planning on spending my PhD wasting way to much time obessing about my workflow. So why not get started? A few things worked well and some aspects still need some work. Word count When I started writing I kept knitting my document to check the word count but that very quickly got annoying.

I first started learning R in the autumn of 2012 but stopped after a couple of months as I didn’t use it. In January 2017 I rediscovered R again and this time I am sticking with it. After discovering blogdown and realising how many different short snippets of code I have hidden away on my computer I decided to share them on this blog instead.
