Come on Netflix! I know that when you say you’re stuck at 25% that it really means that you’re lying to me and that you’re at 0%.
Anyways, that’s not important. But it does mean that I can focus on blogging. I was hoping to do both, but this will have to do. I’m testing my new 11.6″ laptop out on WordPress. It’s not a very powerful machine, so I’ve already abandoned the visual editor. But it’s doing fine with the text editor. And I like Markdown anyway (actually, I prefer CommonMark–I’m not a fan of Gruber).
I’ve been using more and more open source tools at work. And it has peaked my interest in becoming involved in some open source communities and projects. I’ve thought about getting involved with WordPress, but it’s such a huge project. Plus, it feels like it’s getting bloated. And it’s probably overkill for my readership of one and the seldom that I write.
I started looking at Jekyll. It’s perfect, except it’s written in Ruby–I don’t like Ruby. Then I started looking at Octopress. Same problem, plus it doesn’t seem to be actively developed.
Then (just a few minutes ago), I stumbled upon Ghost…
And with just 5 minutes with their trial, I’m sold. I’ll be switching to Ghost in the near future. Ghost with Discourse for comments.
