After years of running on Wordpress, today I’m relaunching my blog using Octopress. Octopress is a blogging framework build on top of Jekyll which in turn is system designed for publishing static sites from source files, be they Markdown, HAML, SASS, etc. This style fits nicely in to my everyday workflow, so my hope is it will get me writing on a regular basis.
Wordpress is great if you want a WYSIWYG blog and I still recommend to my clients. But, if you spend your days in Emacs or Vim, running rake tasks and git commits, you might want to give Octopress a try.
