I started posting blogs using self hosted Wordpress solution. After few years I realize that I should use Ruby/Rack framework. And drop this old way of doing blog post.
I tried moving away from Wordpress few times and one day got success. Finally I converted my all blog posts into markdown format.
Now it’s very easy to choose a Ruby/Rack based framework as posts are already in markdown.
After that I bought a theme from bootstrap and applied that, but I was still using my hosted solution with middleman generated site.
I survived with this for a long time. Problem was for every blog post I have to deploy site using git pull every time by logging into server.
At last I found octopress and a Heroku combination.
