I’ve attempted twice to switch from WordPress to a statically generated site using one of the various tools available including Pelican, Octopress, and Jekyll. I find editing blog posts online to be an impediment for some reason. When I saw that a new version of Blogo had been released at half-price, I decided to take the plunge and try it out. This is my first post with it.
So far, I like it. It doesn’t offer a ton of features, but that’s OK. I don’t expect a tool like Blogo to support all the things I can do to a post in WordPress with its vast assortment of plugins. I don’t mind having to jump into WordPress for things like code snippets and other things that require plug-in functionality. It would be nice, however, if it could sync categories and tags so that they auto-fill in the post editor so that I don’t have to go to my site to remember if my Python tag was capitalized or not.
My first attempt to post this article was not a success.
This was odd, because Preview worked just fine. I pinged the Blogo folks, and they asked me to try posting without images, which seemed to work.
I’ll update this post when the image post issues are resolved. Until then, I guess the real test for success with Blogo will be if you see another post after this one in less than a year.
