Ever since leaving Medium last year on a social media detoxing blitz, I've been searching for a new blog platform and came dangerously close to going back to WordPress, my first blogging platform (unless you count my static website essays which Jeff Atwood in his nice review said "feels remarkably like a blog, but totally isn't...").

But I stumbled on Ghost just today while looking at self-hosted blogging options and figured I'll try the hosted option. Why not: it's got a free trial period, I can always switch to self-hosting later, according to the github repo the subscription fee is going to a good cause, and I can get straight to writing!
