Once upon a time I had a pyblosxom blog. It lived on a Linux box hosted via my DSL connection in the comfort of one of my spare bedrooms. During my switch to Linode, I didn’t port the blog over, though I intended to. I wanted first to get it packaged up nicely for Fedora, but realized in my ongoing quest for laziness, I didn’t really want to maintain the package (it needed a lot of work to prepare for packaging along with plugins to actually make it useful). I had been using pyblosxom with hooks into MoinMoin to let me use its syntax, however as I’ve been using Mediawiki almost exclusively lately, the MoinMoin connection wasn’t as much of a draw and in fact was just confusing me having to remember a variant of yet another wiki syntax.
To make a boring story short, this new blog is the culmination of my laziness. pyblosxom was great, and I’ll miss being able to edit via vi, but I have a feeling moving to WordPress will be better for my blogging existence going forward. 🙂
