+I have a big problem: I can't write a blog in anything other than [[http://orgmode.org/][Org
+mode]]. I have another problem: I haven't found a good way to write a
+blog only in Org mode. This always keeps me going back and forth
+between blogging systems. I've used [[http://wingolog.org/projects/tekuti/][tekuti]], [[https://wordpress.org/][WordPress]], and I've tried
+a few others. Currently I'm using [[https://github.com/kingcons/coleslaw][Coleslaw]]. I haven't written anything
+lately though because it supports Markdown and HTML and I was getting
+antsy for some Org mode again. So I've been on the lookout for
+something new.
+
+Well... *I've had enough*. I'm not going away this time. I'm going to
+fix my problems and commit to this system. I picked Coleslaw because
+it's written en Common Lisp and has some interesting features. I'm
+going to write an exporter for org to whatever Coleslaw needs!
+
+I've known that it's pretty easy to write an exporter for Org mode for
+some time, but I've never actually tried to write one. I modified some
+bits and bobs on [[https://github.com/ryuslash/org-blog][org-blog]], but that didn't really work out. Today
+though, while reading an old(er) post on [[http://endlessparentheses.com/how-i-blog-one-year-of-posts-in-a-single-org-file.html?source=rss][Endless Parentheses]], I ran
+into [[https://github.com/yoshinari-nomura/org-octopress/blob/master/ox-jekyll.el][ox-jekyll]]. Jekyll has a pretty similar page/post definition
+syntax to Coleslaw, so it seemed easy to read what they're doing and
+copy the relevant parts. It's a very small Emacs Lisp file, which made
+it very easy. So congrats to them and the people writing Org mode for
+making some very clear code.
+
+So I wrote (or copied) [[https://github.com/ryuslash/ox-coleslaw][ox-coleslaw]] based on ox-jekyll. It's slightly
+smaller than ox-jekyll because, frankly, it offers less. I just need a
+simple way to export a =.org= file to a =.post= file, nothing fancy.
+
+To write posts I will use Org mode. Once ox-coleslaw is loaded I use
+the org export function to export it to an HTML file with the proper
+header. You can also do this non-interactively from, for example, a
+Makefile, but that is a story for another time.
+
+This document is the first attempt at publishing a blog post using
+ox-coleslaw.
