Well, that was a fun little experiment.
I stuck with Ghost for nearly a month. But I just couldn’t stand it. The whole time, no spell check. And each time there was a new release, still no spell check. Since WordPress can do Markdown just as well as Ghost, it really didn’t make sense to stick with it. It was only lacking features, and the update process was a pain.
So here I am back with WordPress. Plus, I can again use the app on my phone. One of the perk of self-hosting like this was that all I had to do was change a few lines of my web server’s configuration, and the switch was instantaneous. Then I just copied over the couple of post I did through Ghost (manually, since there were only about five), and bam!–back to WordPress.
I think the Ghost project is going to turn out a cool alternative, but it’s just not going to catch up to WordPress. Plus, my blog can snow.
