A few days ago I stumbled upon a neat project named Octopress:
Octopress is an obsessively designed framework for Jekyll blogging. It’s easy to configure and easy to deploy. Sweet huh? – Octopress
Sweet indeed! The more I read about it, the more intrigued I became. After a few hours spent exploring the code, importing the posts/pages from my Wordpress install into Octopress, and tweaking the default theme to my taste, I've taken the jump and moved my site over to using the Octopress platform.
