Switched to Octopress

This is the third Content Management System (CMS) I tried for my homepage. Prior to using Octopress, I used the following:

  • Blosxom
  • Drupal (started with Drupal 6 and then migrated to Drupal 7)

All posts in Blosxom are stored as flat text files, so it is very easy to create, modify, and delete. Drupal requires several database tables to store posts, user names, categories, …

Octopress also uses flat text files to store its data, but it renders the web content must faster because the .html files are generated statically by running Ruby scripts.
