WordPress to Jekyll again

About 4 years ago I moved my blog from WordPress to Octopress. That process was a total hack and eventually I moved back to WordPress because I had just too many blog posts and Jekyll took 10 minutes to build the site before publishing. Since then I’ve dealt with WordPress and it’s issues but generally it has gotten much better. But I’ve grown tired of hosting my own blog and the security updates so I had two choices. Move to or move to Github Pages. Clearly you can see I took the latter route. The migration is a piece of cake, just used a simple python script and converted all my WordPress XML to markdown. Then just push to Github. The results as you see them?

  • Blog looks bare, I haven’t themed it yet
  • 404 errors galore
  • Feed probably spammed you
  • Killed comments1
