Blog Ported to Ruby on Rails

Ruby on Rails, blog, port

After doing some research for potential employment in Tucson, Arizona I encountered an employer who wanted Ruby on Rails knowledge. In order to fill this gap in my tech understanding, I decided to learn the framework and ended up enjoying using it (after some initial frustrations.) Once I realized the power of this framework, I decided to port my existing blog to it. I found a guide here which explained the basics of generating static site output from a Ruby on Rails website. I modified the example there and created a simple CMS whereby I can author and edit posts from the server end, and then run a rake task to generate the static HTML output.
