Why I Choose Ghost- 1 min
Yes I know, I have a blog on Blogger why I used to share my ideas and thoughts. I can login and write a blog post any where thanks to Google.
Since Ghost runs on Node.js, I have it set up on my laptop running Linux Mint 17.1 first.
After reading about it’s features I decided to try it out. It took me days to get Ghost up and running. I toured it and love its simplicity. Quickly I found out I can use Ghost with Github static pages. Then I thought of moving over.
One thing I like about Ghost is using markup for publishing, that sounds cool to me.
Also, there lot of free responsive themes available. Plus am able to customize these to my liking. I was able to get get Disqus running.
Now how am I able to publish blog posts? This is the part that most people might not want to try because it’s a involving a little but hey is an adventure :).
Since Ghost is on my local machine, I just spin up my local Node.js server to start ghost and I can access it at port 2368 on localhost. Whenever am done with a blog post I use the Buster tool to deploy to Github and that is how you’re able to see and read :).
Thanks for passing by and hope you’re gonna enjoy my ideas, thoughts and updates.
