A minimalistic Go blogging system

I’ve spent some time over the last few days putting together a small system to serve up static pages and blog posts using Go. Using Go’s template and http packages, plus Russ Ross’s Black Friday implementation of Markdown, I have replaced the Plan 9 httpd and provided a simple method to run a blog in 182 lines of code.

At the moment, comments are not supported, and new posts are created by connecting to my server and editing a text file. I may implement comments in the future but will probably not add online composition.
