UPDATE: This is an archived post from my previous site running Octopress. You’ll notice that I did indeed move platforms. -Tai
One of the interesting things I’ve noticed in my virtuous cycle of blogging and writing: I get into a definite funk.
When I moved to Octopress (from Drupal), I had hoped that moving towards using my base, text-editor (now Sublime Edit) would help lower the barrier of entry for me.
I was wrong.
Turns out, I’m not at my desk as much as I thought I would be. Often times, I am doing other things. One thing I’ve found is getting it setup on different platforms is kind of a pain (don’t even bother on Windows).
I deployed to my VPS on prgmr.com, but now I’m working solely in Vim (not my cup of tea), and moving around my private ssh key to get terminal access somewhere is something I’d prefer not to do. (I even considered making a portable USB flash key for this).
I spend a large amount of time on my iPad and smartphones (I own several and swap monthly).
So I’m taking a look at other options–specifically WordPress.
