I finally got around to starting my blog. I have started fresh with a new domain, new hosting provider and new blog platform.
Originally I installed Ghost because I wanted to work with node.js on the server side. I had a full Ghost setup behind nginx, which was a bit different than the standard nginx php-fpm setup that I have experience with.
Ghost is a great platform if your goal is to write blogs with no bells and whistles. I liked writing with Markdown, but the lack of commenting pushed me back towards WordPress.
In any case, the page is up and running with an A+ from SSL Labs. In the future I plan to write about packet analysis, networking, Linux and automation.
