While historically I have not posted to my blog very often, I have decided to move it from a self-hosted Wordpress install over to the hosted blogging platform, Ghost. The Ghost blogging engine itself is open source so you are able to use your hosting of choice, but lately I’ve really grown to appreciate turn key services. I just pay a small monthly fee and it all “just works.”
For the needs of this blog, Wordpress has too many bells and whistles that are not needed, and I really like the simplicity that Ghost provides. The markdown editor with live preview is a real gem.
Hopefully with this change you will also start seeing more posts. My goal is to start posting the various web development solutions that I come across or figure out, especially for the ones where I couldn’t find a post anywhere.
I’m excited to get back into posting and to be using Ghost!
