Yep, after over a decade of using WordPress to power my blog, I jumped the ship and moved to Jekyll. It’s an amazing blogging tool and –although not using it for too long– I’m loving it.

Needless to say, it was a real challenge to make it all work. Even though I do have extensive experience in setting up VPS servers, I never worked with Ruby or RubyGems. I never installed Dropbox using command line tools!

But I managed. And now this blog not only runs on Jekyll, it also grabs new posts from my Dropbox folder. And it all runs on a super-cheap but super-fast linux VPS by Linode.
