Middle…everything?

So here I am, writing on my new Ghost-driven blog (exciting…or not…depending on your point of view) while:

  • drinking peppermint tea
  • eating posh crisps and organic carrot sticks dipped in home-made homous
  • watching The West Wing on DVD
  • in my three-bedroom, semi-detached house in Swindon.

I feel like I’m in a stereotypical, middle-class, middle-England, middle-aged parody of my own life.

    ooooh – tis exciting. So this whole thing is running on Ghost? How was the installation and setup?

      Ah, no. This here is running on WordPress still. The Ghost is linked (subtly) or is at http://ghost.wintle.me.uk

      Setup’s pretty complicated. Looks easy-ish if you want to run it locally on a Windows or Mac computer. Slightly more complicated if you want to run it locally on Linux.

      I got it up and running on a local, Linux-based dev server. Which was pretty complicated, and if I didn’t have good networking knowledge I’d have been VERY confused. http://ghost.wintle.me.uk is on an Amazon EC2 instance, which was even more tricky!

      Ghost won’t become popular until it’s easy to host…if at all!
