Adventures in GitHub Blogging

I got tired of Drupal as a blogging platform awfully quickly. It ended up being too much for my needs (as is probably the case with anyone who is using it solely for blogging).

I stumbled across a couple of interesting solutions (like hosting on s3). Ultimately, though, I like the idea of keeping it simple and having the content in a format I can easily export and read with a text editor.

Windows Live Writer is still the best blogging tool I’ve ever used… too bad I’ve started focusing some of my development efforts on my mac lately. Time to move back to a text editor…

Luckily, github has some awesome abilities to both version your blog and host it at the same time, thanks to github pages.

Tom Preston Werner has an interesting post about doing just that, as do some other people.
