I've been wanting to do this for a while now, and finally found the time/bit the bullet. Wordpress, while awesome, just wasn't cutting it for me - especially since I had to pay quite a bit for hosting and the like. For now, I'll use GitHub pages and go from there. I have also switched over to using Pelican. My plan is to get all the old content re-posted into the new blog, which I don't think will be too much trouble. Just have to find the time.
