First Post on Octopress

I’ve been a wordpress user since it was a 0.x release. I loved wordpress, and b2 before it. Wordpress has become a poor man’s CMS rather than a blogging engine. I’m OK with that, and I have made use of those features extensively. But now, wordpress kinda stinks for writing, and I like to write, given the chance.1

One thing I don’t have a ton of time for is re-inventing the look/feel/action of my website all over again. Maybe some day, but between 60hr work weeks, two kids, a wife, a house/yard, church ministries, etc., the last thing in the world on my list is tweaking my blog’s CSS. So I’m also OK with using someone else’s theme running on heroku for free.

It’s going to take some time to port my existing blog over, so once I do I’ll swap this one in for that one. Until then.. well, this will just have to do.


  1. Honestly I’m not sure I have much to say, but when I do say it, I like to say it how I like to say it. That almost makes sense.
