Converting my blog to Octopress

Recently I started looking into migrating my blog to something that would be a little easier to maintain. My Django powered blog was nice, but there where a lot of moving parts and required a lot of resource overhead (apache, mysql, django, etc…). I enjoy exploring new technologies so I started looking into static site generators. What I was looking for: Easy to use and learn Straightforward development to live process Somewhat customizable A quick google search for static site generators pulls up quite a few.
