Hi, I'm Chris Moyer's Blog.

Ramblings Moved to Tumblr

Not exactly sure why.   I decided to make the home page of inarow.net something else (which isn’t done yet.)  So, I started shopping around for blogging options.  I see too much of wordpress on the clock, so I wrote that off.  I ended up on tumblr because I liked their API, flexibility and capabilities.

Speaking of API, it was about an hour to import all my posts from bloxsom.

  1. Install ruby-tumblr gem
  2. Install RedCloth gem
  3. Whip up a script
  4. Run the script

    find blog/entries/ -type f -name ‘*.txt’ | grep -v ‘draft/’ | ruby tumbleit.rb
