-I had already used DokuWiki for various wiki needs, and after taking a look at some of the plugins available, I decided to give it a try.  After some experimentation ​on an offline environment,​ I decided to give it a try.  I ported my old blog entries, added this entry, and here we are!  I hope you find it as much of an improvement as I do.+I had already used DokuWiki for various wiki needs, and after taking a look at some of the plugins available, I decided to give it a try as a blogging tool.  After some experimentation ​in an offline environment,​ I was convinced ​it meets my needs better than blosxom.  I ported my old blog entries, added this entry, and here we are!  I hope you find it as much of an improvement as I do.  Now I just need to move my reading list.
