For the longest time, I’ve used Wordpress to run my blog. I recently tried out Ghost. Ghost was nice and simple, but wasn’t quite what I was looking for.
I found Hexo and deployed the site with NGINX on a linux vm. Super simple. You pretty much write blog posts as files in markdown, then “compile”, and publish the static files it generates. I love how I can use git to version control the whole blog. In the future when I get super bored, I’ll try setting up continuous integration for this site.
