I gave Ghost a good shot. And I do love it as a blogging platform, the markdown and writing experience is beautiful. But I’ve switched this site back to WordPress because I want it to be more than just a blog. I’ve been inspired by Derek Sivers’s site and want to make this a platform for many different videos, reviews, and projects I’m working on. If you notice anything broken please let me know.
I’ve also installed the Jetpack Markdown plugin because writing in markdown is so much nicer and cleaner than the default wordpress editing experience (or maybe I’ve just become used to it, coding and submitting PR’s on Github for the last 2 years).
I did like that Ghost was written in NodeJS, which I love far more than PHP, but in the end I did very little actual core hacking so that really didn’t matter.
