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. ;-)
