Welcome to 2012.
I've been using WordPress for a long time. Before that was MoveableType, a short stint with Drupal and Joomla, Geeklog and old fashioned hand rolled pages.
I've been wanting to change things up lately. WordPress is getting bloated. I was looking in Jekyll when I stumbled across Octopress. I tried for a few days to get it working on Windows, and did manage to get it working (sort of), but it's much easier on Linux (and I imagine a Mac). I'll try to blog about my setup soon.
I'm still working on tweaking things, and I have a load of old posts to comb though and clean up.
I'm also working on some Octopress snippets for Sublime which will make inserting images, etc much easier.
