I'm using Ghost now

The ten of you who read this blog (thanks, folks) will have noticed that the format changed slightly over the weekend. With help, I'm experimenting with a new, non-Wordpress platform called Ghost.

Ghost's big attraction for me is the way they've structured the process of writing and publishing posts. As you can see, the writing window gives you a live preview of what the final post will look like, which is fun.

Ghost also uses Markdown, which is a syntax that makes using bold and italics and other fun formatting a lot more painless than it is in HTML. As Ghost users often say, it puts the writing first.

Since I was going to change the guts of the blog, I decided to give it a face-lift as well. It will probably be in flux for a few more months while I figure out what its final form will be. In the meantime, enjoy the show.
