I am using Ghost for this blog.
I am running my own instance, which made it a bit of work to set up.
You can use their hosted version: ghost.org Which is a much easier way to get things up and running.
So, Ghost - it's a simple but very effective tool for blogging.
With simple you let go of some features and control, but that can be good. Focus on what you want to do. In my case what I want to do is write blog posts on the internet. Other features? Extraneous.
This is what happens when you pick a good software tool or platform:
- You get started faster.
- You get more features for less work/money.
- You can focus on the hard or interesting work and avoid getting mired in non-essential details.
If I need something else later I'll figure it out later.
