Something New Is Here!

Welcome to the new JaymZZZ.com site. This site is now being built using a relatively new blogging platform known as ghost. A good friend of mine showed me this software and I decided to go ahead and remove the old wordpress site and install it.

Here are some of the things that I like about Ghost:

  • It has a very clean interface, as you can see.
  • It is very easy to use. In fact, it's designed for blogging, so all you have is the ability to add/edit and delete posts. According to their site, however, a lot more things will be added soon!
  • It was mentally stimulating to install. This isn't your typical wordpress...It takes some skill to install.

Here are some of the things that can be improves in Ghost:

  • Right now, you can only install it on dedicated servers (and I don't see this changing really...)
  • You have to be a power user (This thing doesn't seem to run with Apache, so you need NGINX skills)
  • Configuring the MySQL database and mail settings are a little harder since there is no installer.
  • It needs it's own daemon to run, making it harder to properly auto-start or monitor.

Other than that I think that ghost is an absolute gem and I can't wait to see what they bring to the table. Anyhow, welcome back to JaymZZZ.com and keep checking for news and updates...
