Haha! I've done it! I've figured out how to use Pelican AND still have what I want from it! Pinned posts! I can have my home page with a short intro, link to the "About Me" page for a full write up, and remove the "Blog" page leaving the rest of my Home page to be the blog :D
Perfection! Now I've just got to fuck about with the whole setup and getting everything looking nice and shit :3 You likely won't see any of this part since I'll only upload it all once I'm basically done.
