Use GitHub as your Blog!

David Baldwin has said goodbye to WordPress and started using GitHub as his blog. Go see for yourself:

github.com/bilson/blog

I love seeing novel uses of git and GitHub and this one especially caught my interest. Having all your blog posts in one versioned repository with all images and code readily available is a cool idea.

I have a habit of changing my blog URL and software a lot and I’ve lost a great many posts over the years. I’m starting to wonder if a few tweaks and features would make this work even better. What about a blog system that uses GitHub for data storage so that you always know where your data is and that you can take it with you? Or a blog system that sucked in content from a GitHub repo and formatted it nicely so that you could post by simply pushing to a GitHub repo? What other ideas are there that could use GitHub and blogging together?
