Spring cleaning with a CDN

So after tweeting I was giving up on Wordpress, I’m still using Wordpress! I spent a few weeks looking at alternatives and playing around with some custom stuff (written in Clojure of course). I found plenty to like with Squarespace, Typepad & Posterous and was ready to slap down the credit card. But! For instance, my ideal workflow involves simple bookmarklets and simple editors. TypePad and Posterous have great bookmarklets however I could never get the Squarespace one to work. But in the end, I just wanted the flexibility that running something yourself can bring.

I started from scratch with Wordpress. Trashed a bunch of plug-ins I thought where necessary (they aren’t!) Got something fancy going with Amazon Cloudfront (it’s faster!) And upgraded my MarsEdit (awesome!) Back to blogging.
