Inspired by my friend OJ, I've decided to make the switch to Blogofile. I guess I have too much time on my hands.

There isn't much I can say on this subject that hasn't already been said. This script came in handy to convert my Blogger posts across.

My biggest hurdle was finding a new host and being a complete cheapskate. I couldn't seem to find a free and simple HTML site. I started to think about Dropbox, until I realised that they don't respect index.html files. Fortunately someone had a neat idea - host it on GitHub!

One thing would have been nice is a selection of out-the-box themes; but completely understandable that there isn't. In the meantime I ported my current Blogger theme, which was surprisingly painless.

I'll probably be tweaking bits-and-pieces of the site in the next few weeks, like a child playing with a new toy. Procrastinating instead of, say, writing new blog posts.
