programming

Full Steam Ahead

A week or so ago I decided that I needed a new programming project to work on. I haven’t really had something like this since I closed the book on OpenVoter.

My Thoughts on Ghost so Far

Two weeks ago, I decided to make the switch from WordPress to Ghost as my blogging platform. For me it was a figuratively big jump as I have been using WordPress for years and hadn’t really thought of switching to any other platform.

Now Running on Ghost

Despite my initial skepticism about switching over to Ghost as my blogging platform, I still pushed ahead and made my blog theme for Ghost. As you can tell, the look isn’t all that different from it’s previous look, but the backend is completely different.

Making a Switch to Ghost?

Several months ago, when Ghost was first released to the public, I took a look at it and made a note to give it a look-see. Over the past week, I finally got it running on my dev server playing nicely with my Apache setup. So far I’ve been playing around with it and am contemplating whether I want to switch my blog platform over to it from WordPress, which is what I currently use.

A New Mini-Project is Brewing: Daily Shots

In November of 2011, after really getting into photography, I decided to finally take the plunge and get myself a DSLR camera. I chose the Canon EOS 60D because I liked what it offered, and my girlfriend (now my fiancee) also had it and recommended it to me. I should add that it also is nice since we’ll be able to share lenses. Fast forward to now, I’ve gotten better with photography, but don’t always have the time to go out with my Canon and find those awesome shots.
