Having written exactly six blog posts since migrating this website to WordPress in October 2010, I have now migrated my blog again: knittel.cc is now running on Octopress.

Why? Octopress is a geek’s dream:

  • Write your posts using Markdown
  • … in your favorite editor (whether Vim, Sublime Text 2 or whatever is cool at the moment).
  • Store, version control and optionally deploy it using git.
  • Host on any HTTP server. No PHP or database required.
  • Easy deployment to a free Heroku instance.
  • Easy integration of Twitter, Google+ and GitHub.
  • Comments via disqus.

I hope Octopress will inspire me to post more frequently. ;-)
