+- If you are having trouble with posts not being created then run `dropbox status` to check if there is a problem syncing. If you get a message like `Can't sync "": permission denied` then check `ls -l /home/blog/Dropbox/Blog/`. All of the folders should belong to blog, not root. To fix this enter `sudo chown -R blog:blog /home/blog/Dropbox/Blog/`.

- I'm not a total neckbeard sysadmin. My implementation of the server environment is likely poor. Use it at your own risk (or fix my code if you know better).
