Welcome to my shiny new blog. I am a front-end web developer from London and this is my first post using Ghost.
Why am I starting a blog?
It’s the chance to try something new, a playground to learn and document my findings. A place to showcase my talent as a web developer and a place on the web to call home. It may even help some people along the way (Hopefully).
Why I didn’t want to use WordPress!
I could just hit the ground running and start blogging. With WordPress it would be way too easy for me to use all of the existing amazing plugins and themes that have already been created to quickly build a really awesome blog. For most people I guess that’s the main advantage of using WordPress.
I really wanted to run a blog that I would be proud of as a developer, a place to really call home and I just didn’t feel that WordPress would be the right path for me to go down.
Don’t get me wrong I love WordPress and have built many websites using it in the past, but for my own personal development blog I just really wanted something that would take a little more time and effort to get comfortable with.
Ghost – It’s the future!
I am choosing Ghost simply because I think it’s cool.
How did I get started?
Simples! I visited Host Ghost and they hooked me up as a Beta Tester!
You can find me on twitter if you want to get in touch.
