After trying and failing several times at maintaining a blog, I've decided to give it another go. Looking back, I think the crux of the problem was there were too many reasons not to write.
Previously it wasn't just the writing standing in my way, it was:
- Maintaining a web server
- Maintaining a WordPress install
- Figuring out what plugins are best
- Configuring the site visually (Never could get things just right)
I do not want to deal with any of that.
After investigating a few different services, I've decided to give Ghost a try. It has a clean interface, it's easy to setup and use, and it comes with everything I need out of the box.
Sometimes less options are a good thing.
