I have to agree with some other commenters: this article is one of the most stupid things I have ever seen.
First some blatantly stupid advice which sounds like some "how to run a successful website" tutorial from 1999. Things such as "you should look at your logs no less than once a day", "react to what's popular", "presize your images" and similar crap.
Then the most stupid possible ways to use unix to do things which don't need being done anyway. Such as expect scripts to run the classic "ftp" to update some clients. If anybody really wanted to blog from the command line, they'd hopefully use rsync or scp. Or a script doing XMLRPC calls on a web server.
