Migrating to Jekyll from Personal Weblog

Created: 04 Dec 2011

This weekend I wrote some code to extract my posts from Personal Weblog and put them into a Jekyll-friendly format.

I suspect that few people were using Personal Weblog in the first place and of those, even fewer will migrate to Jekyll, so it’s unlikely that this will be of much use to many people, but I tidied it up a bit and put it up on github anyway.

The import isn’t very reliable, especially if there’s less than ideal HTML inside the blog posts and you might find yourself manually editing HTML to edit the post.
