+Well, after listening to a friend about all the bell and whistles
+related to blogging with [Octopress]( I decided to
+test it by myself. The
+philosophy is simple but powerful. Octopress is based on
+[Jekyll](, as said in the project's page *"a
+simple, blog
+aware site generator"*, the main idea is to create your web site
+locally using a whole pipeline of tools like Textile, Markdown and
+others that are integrated into it (I'm not specially and expert about
+it) and spit out a complete
+static set of files that you can serve very easily with whatever
+webserver at your hands. Apart from minimizing the whole processing
+bunch needed to serve dynamic web sites (CMS, MVC frameworks, caching
+...) it is also very productive. The only thing that you need to write
+your stuff is a text editor (like Vim xD) and let the magic
+happen. Of course if you have a well configured text editor, you'll have
+a nice set of tools for editing your posts in whatever **text-to-html**
+conversion tool. Without noticing, now I have the subject for the next
+post, *How to configure **Vim** for efective editing and programming in
+modern times!*.
+Well that's all for today folks!
