Same spit, different shine

Well well well, isn't this a change! After months of flirting with the idea of porting the old blog design from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, I decided to take a more interesting approach and migrate the whole blog from Drupal to the newfangled, recently kickstarted Ghost.

On the whole, I'm quite pleased with the speed, appearance (thanks to a beautiful theme from Viktor Bezdek), and authoring experience of Ghost, and it seems to consume fewer system resources than the old Drupal site did.

Ghost is still missing a few important native pieces (SEO fields for descriptions and page titles, a contact form, Google Analytics support, etc.), and I encounter my fare share of bugs, but as the software progresses past v0.3, I expect things will get better.

In the meantime, I hope to be blogging more in the future, so I hope to see you soon! And let me know what you think of the new design / layout in the comments :)
