Migration from Wordpress to Nikola

A new year, a new blog engine.

While Wordpress is quite useful, its a heavy, hunking bit of software for those who just post occasionally and don't really need any dynamic content at all. This is where Nikola comes into play.

Nikola takes posts in reST, Jupyter Notebook, YAML, TOML, Markdown or HTML and runs them through the theming engine to get plain, static HTML.

The benefit of this is almost zero load on your web server - as there is no dynamic data to process. Especially good for cheap VPS packages from the many online providers.

So far, I'm impressed!
