A file-based blog alternative using text files, Markdown and ASP.NET MVC 3. Write your blog post with Markdown syntax in a text file from your iPad, mobile device or workstation, send to web host and make available without the admin interface, database, etc. A simple solution for PAAS environments.

Nice solution. How expensive is the markdown to html conversion?

Not expensive at all. Simply reading in Markdown text syntax. In this case, a simple Html.Helper takes care of everything as needed. My current site uses a modified form of this within AppHarbor's PAAS environment. Works great.
