A new site, built on Ghost

Published on

It was about time I spent some time to work on my personal site.

The old one was vastly outdated in terms of content and technologies used. I also didn’t write a single blog post in at least 6 months, while there is more than enough going on in my daily life to write about.

Anyway, here it is: my new site. Pretty much everything in the way it is served has changed.

Previously Now
Machine Dual Core, 2GB RAM Quad Core, 4GB RAM
Server location Amsterdam, NL Newark, NJ, USA
Server software Apache Nginx
Scripting language PHP 5.3 Node
CMS WordPress Ghost
Theme Custom WordPress theme Modified version of Uno, a Ghost theme by Dale Anthony
Comments WordPress comments Disqus

So far I am pretty pleased with the results. Working with Ghost and writing in Markdown has been a bless so far. Also, the new site speed is just incredible.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the new site and design - love it or hate it?

PS. Maybe, just maybe, using Ghost will help me blog a little more often. You never know..
