Stephen Hargrove’s Blog Workflow

Stephen Hargrove wrote his own static blog generator: it uses Perl, Dropbox, AppleScript, Acorn, and Hazel — and it does a lot more than mine does.

I dig how it works. Stephen writes:

So basically, my workflow is now this: 1. Write a post. 2. Rename the post with the ".markdown" extension. 3. Check my iPhone when the notification comes in to see the post was successfully made.
