Building a Blog with Org Mode

As regular readers know, Irreal posts begin as Org Mode files that are subsequently published to WordPress with org2blog. This works very well for me but not everyone wants to run WordPress. For those of you who want to build your own blog, Bastien Guerry has a great post that shows you how to build and publish a blog from Emacs Org Mode.

It's astounding how easy it is. Guerry walks you through the process from your first post to adding an RSS feed. What you end up with is a static blog and the associated RSS feed. In the spirit of eating his own dog food, Guerry publishes his blog this way. You can see the result by clicking on the home button at the linked post.

Guerry is an interesting guy and one of the heroes of Org Mode. For anyone interested in some background, I've written about him here, here, and here.

      Fixed. Thanks. This is infuriating. There's a long discussion on gmane.emacs.orgmode about this but there was no resolution. It appears to be some sort of interaction between the clipboard and Org mode.
