I have countless blogs simply just because I would like to try them. But eventually most of them are thrown into the aether and never came back to fruition.
Hi! My name is Giri, and probably you are here because I post this link somewhere on the internet just because I'd like to test out the installation of this blog. OR, if you are an enthusiast reader, welcome! welcome!
As I said at the beginning of this post, I really really love to try stuffs out. Those feelings to take a "journey" and to try something new to toy with gives me so much endorphin, which in a way it is a procrastination 🙄. This blog is also a thing of procrastination. But of course, it is a productive procrastination *smack myself*.
This is my first time to use ghost as my blogging platform, but fear not, I've been blogging since junior high school. I've used wordpress, blogdrives, tumblr, blogger, medium, you name it. Most of them are random stuffs which I don't really fond of to share because they are just plain historical cringe. I love how my youth being documented, but let it be buried into piles of internet randomness.
Why do I using Ghost? I've been eyeing this platform since my workplace started using Ghost. It looks so sleek and less cluttered than Wordpress. In Wordpress you can easily get lost by browsing plugins or themes instead of creating the content. And because my curse of being a person who love to try new stuffs out, it's not going well.
The second reason why I'm using Ghost, I've been listening to podcast lately. One day I listened to a show called Not Overthinking by Ali and Taimur Abdaal, and there's an episode where they interviewing John O'Nolan.
John is a founder of Ghost. He talked about how his way of life as a digital nomad and taking care of his product with the team. He also mentioned why he made Ghost, and oh boy do I interested to this platform even more.
For days I've been haunted (heh) by how compelling this platform is. It's a blog platform which is so simple and modern, just like Medium, but can be self hosted. Several days later, after skimming posts about how to install Ghost, here it is.
I'm even surprised how I could write this post up to this long. The editor itself is so simple and decluttered I could spend my time focusing on what to type for the next word instead of thinking "what is that button?".
Welp, I hope it's another journey of my blogging days. I'll try to mix what I know, what I really like, and what I do everyday into this blog. Most of them will talk about coding stuffs, game programming, technology, maybe a little bit of cats, all being glued with broken English, and stuffs along the way. See you at the next post!
