So I decided to dump Wordpress and go to something that I have more control over. I was thinking of building my own static blogging system, but I looked around and found that there are a few already. Being a fan of Python I decided to try out Pelican. It uses a bunch of technology that I would use anyway, like reStructuredText, Jinja2, etc.
It also gives me an excuse to play with Heroku for hosting. Which, I must say, is pretty cool for getting a website or web service hosted quickly, with nothing but a push from Git to trigger the publishing of the site.
Granted, Heroku was meant to host dynamic sites driven by WSGI apps, but I found a great hack to fool Heroku into running a static site.
