Migrating from wordpress to octopress
I’m not an avid blogger but like everyone else, I have a blog which I casually write about life and programming. Being hosted by wordpress, it was an out-of-the-box solution and comes with a lot of bells and whistles. However, for a programming blog, it has some significant shortcomings:
