Moving from WordPress to Blot.im

Moving from Wordpress to Blot

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know the frustration I was starting to have with my clunky WordPress build, Ijo Pona.

So, I pretty much threw in the towel and moved over to Blot.im.

Blot is an App that converts Markdown in your Dropbox (or Google Drive folder) into a functioning website. You are looking at it now - it will hopefully encourage me to write more and to dive deep into Blot tinkering.

There are a limited number of themes to choose from - but, it makes the process simpler through limited choice.

I admit I had a lot of great help converting my WordPress export into MD. Thanks, David! I have been shown a lot of kindness and understanding since signing up for Blot - the support is great!

My one gripe seems to be the comments section - I am not a massive fan of Disqus. There is something about the interface that just screams overkill.’ Plus, I was not getting a great number of comments on my blog so I thought I would just leave it off, with the option to revisit it in the future.

Overkill is not something I can be accused of with Ijo Pona. This is a pared-down version of the blog - one I am happier with.
