Moving from Wordpress to Acrylamid

I have just moved my blog to Acrylamid. I have been planning this move for a long time, because Wordpress is way too large, slow and has too many features I don't need. I wanted to be able to blog using just Markdown, use Git for versioning and be able to publish with rsync.

There are many static blogging platforms, the most popular being Jekyll. That one fell of the list right away because it was written in Ruby. Then I looked at Hakyll, which is written in Haskell, but it is waaaay too com­pli­cat­ed and requires too much work just to be able to make a continue.
