Moving to Jekyll

With hope that this will also mean writing more often, I've finally decided to move to a modern blogging platform.

Moving away from Wordpress

Wordpress is a mature blogging platform, full of extraordinary features. You get automatic updates, easy updates for plugins, nice interface to manage the whole thing and a lot of available plugins & themes.

Why move away from this?

It requires hosting, it is kinda slow and it is not exactly low ceremony.

Why Jekyll


I've finished migrating posts, and content to Jekyll. Even if some of the content required manual fiddling, it has not been a difficult experience. Now waiting for Google Webmaster's Tools to tell me what I've screwed up.

One thing I've noticed is that my blog now is blazing fast - which is normal, considering it's just a bunch of static web pages hosted on Github.
