Moving to Jekyll

This site has moved from Drupal to Jekyll/Octopress. Jekyll is a static-site generator. So no more databases and updates to install. You can write your content in HTML or Markdown.

Converting Drupal Posts

You can use octopress drupal module to export Drupal nodes to Octopress. It is a straightforward process. This module will generate octopress post files.

Comment

I moved comments to disqus. I exported Drupal comments using disqus migrate module as an XML file. Then import them in Disqus.

Conclusion

I really like Octopress so far. Writing posts in favorite text editor in Markdown is quick. Drupal feels too heavyweight for light blogging. Now There is 0 maintenance required for my personal blog :-).
