wordpress import notes
first i used the wordpress posterous importer to import old posts from my older posterous blog. then to import from my blog based on static flat files, first i used markdown to convert markdown text files to html, and then i used blogpost.py to post html files to wordpress blog as posts. blogpost.py worked well with no issues.
markdown plus blogpost.py gives a reasonable way to write using markdown and be able to get it into wordpress for publishing.
given that there are a number of other convenient methods to get posts into wordpress that don’t specifically support markdown, i don’t know how much i’ll really be using it, but it’s nice to know it’s an option.
wordpress for note taking
i’m starting to think about using wordpress as my note collection system.
you can post by email. there are mobile client apps, and there is the "press this" bookmarklet. there is even the command line blogpost.py client. so from pretty much any environment there is a way to get info into wordpress.
since you can keep posts in draft status or private, where they are not published, it can serve as an information repository regardless of how polished it is. then, once it is actually ready for other people to see, it can be published. or, if it is only relevant to yourself, it can stay in draft or private status.
