I’ve moved my blog from Wordpress to my homepage domain. It makes use of Octopress, which is based on Jekyll, and is a static site generator. The blog is hosted on GitHub pages, and is open source.

The great benefit of this stack of tools is that I can easily create and edit my posts in Markdown, re-generate the blog through command line, and make use of Rake (Ruby’s make tools) to perform various tasks ranging from post creation to deployment to GitHub pages. It’s awesome.
