Separation of blogs

So I'll just decouple my personal blog from the professional, and abandon wordpress... Hopefully for ever. No hard feelings, wordpress served well for years, but it's becoming a hassle to maintain it. I was looking for ways to scale it, load-balance it, make it a cloud based application. I was even temped to use a SPOFless, distributed, transparent filesystem just to be able to properly *cloud it*. Nevertheless, it's not worth it. Probably if my blog would have houndreds of active users and publishers, I would have continued the battle. But I just want to write my mind out.

Why here? Why Posterous? Because I've been to a github meetup once, and ended up drinking with Sachin Agarwal and Christopher Burnett. Yeah, I could probably tell that (true) story as my main motivation, but that's not why I chose Posterous. I'm following Henrik Kniberg (by the way, check out his stuff!), and he did a research which came in handy: http://bigfamilytrip.posterous.com/and-the-winner-is


I'm not sure if I will migrate the old stuff from the original site or not. Some are out-dated, some can be added easily. Probably I'll add the latter... Sooner or later :)
