Markdown Mode Is A Win

I previously mentioned reviving this blog by starting to use Cryogen.

Cryogen works by compiling your posts created in Markdown into HTML using the theme and configuration settings you've setup. This is great because I can edit everything in Emacs just as I do for nearly everything else.

Here, I've been using org-mode for nearly all lists, plans and documents for a very long time. With the discovery of Markdown Mode for Emacs) I've found a new balance. With keystrokes for expanding and moving around your Markdown document that are familar to the org-mode user I've found the new mode is making creating these blog posts as comfortable as when I was creating documents in org-mode.
