I’ve been trying to figure out what I’m going to do as far as blogging for a long time. My subscription to WordPress.com just renewed which caused me to again begin thinking about options.
So I’ve been looking around and considering ways to be able to have a console / cli oriented blogging workflow.
I considered using wp-cli and something to transform markdown into html. But looking around the Internet I saw Org2Blog and so today I’ve been messing around with it and seeing how well it works.
So far I’m pretty impressed.
I would like to get it to work with MFA which requires me to figure out how to make it and WordPress.com happy with an application specific password. But for the moment I’m pretty happy and org-mode provides the equivalent or a superset of the capabilities of markdown – and I’ve been using org-mode for task management and journaling already so I’m familiar with it. Now I just need to get used to how it ends up translated to HTML.
