My old domain name, aatiis.me, is about to expire. I registered it at
GoDaddy last year, but later on I’ve changed my mind to not paying
another dime to them.
The plan is now to move all the posts to the Aiur blog (i.e. this blog).
Since all the old posts are written in markdown, the idea was to move to a
Github-hosted Octopress-based blog. Octopress is a great platform.
Quoting the website, it is:
[…] a framework designed by Brandon Mathis for Jekyll, the blog
aware static site generator powering Github Pages. To start blogging with
your configuration. But with Octopress all of that is already taken care of.
Simply clone or fork Octopress, install dependencies and the theme, and
And the favourite part about Octopress is that I could keep writing my posts in
the [greatest text editor ever made] :)
But then I’ve decided to try something different: [Tumblr]. It seems to be
simple enough, it’s free, and it supports custom-tailored themes (will be
trying to play with that in the future). Downside is that I now have to write
my posts directly for the web, and I can’t use git for that (well, I could just
keep writing posts in markdown & compiling them using Jekyll, committing
them to the website’s repo & pasting the generated output here in Tumblr
— that’s something to try.)
UPDATE: it appeared to me that tumblr now supports markdown, so that
makes life a lot easier. All I have to do now is copy the posts.
