I've been blogging since 2007 (here's the very first post) using the Blogger platform.
Last week I looked at my blog and thought it could be so much better. Cleaner. I looked for a new Blogger theme but couldn't find anything I liked.
So, I looked around and found Ghost.io, an open source project. I liked the simplicity and speed of Ghost.io but it required some customisation to make it work.
I also like the editing interface. (You write in the left pane and immediately see the output in the right pane).
Here's my toolkit
- Ghost for the blogging platform
- Charia theme by Sven Read
- Feedburner for email subscriptions
- Cloudflare for domain redirects
- Disqus for comments
- Google Analytics for tracking
So what do you think? Like the new look?
