From Blogger to Octopress

I decided to move away from Blogger blogging service to Octopress, which is “a framework designed for Jekyll, the static blogging engine powering Github Pages”.

I did the change because of two reasons:

  1. Notifications for comments. When Google introduced Google+ comments to Blogger I did the switch and for some unknown reason I am not receiving notification for comments on articles. I have spent some time trying to fix this problem without success.

  2. Syntax highlighting for code snippets. I was doing HTML exports from my text editor to include in blog posts, followed by a bit of HMTL fiddling, which is not always fun.
