Octopress Blog Creation, Editing and Synchronization Across OS X and iOS - An Octopress Blog Tool Chain

I started this journey looking for a means to create a blog, in an OS X and iOS centric environment, that didn’t involve using Wordpress or having to edit HTML directly (if I could help it.)

In this blog post I describe the processes I have for creating, editing, deploying, managing and controlling content for my Octopress blogs.

So I thought I would give TT-RSS a try.
