Using WordPress

I’ve decided to use WordPress for my blogging needs. As the challenge went out, I did indeed build myself a nice little blogging engine in Rails. And when I say nice, I mean, working. Also, when I say little, I mean very little. I’ll open source it soon.

The reason I decided to use WordPress is because I wanted to move this domain to Dreamhost from Slicehost. Since I have a Dreamhost account that doesn’t support Rails very well (it may now with Passenger), and I was constantly tweaking my Slicehost account, I wanted a place where I could publish regularly without bringing down my server. As I also wanted to start sharing with others what I have learned technologically, whether it’s Rails-related or not; I just wanted a consistent place to do so. This is it.
