Why I've moved on from Ghost

I liked the hosted Ghost blog platform and being able to write things using markdown, but I couldn't shake the feeling of being stuck in a cramped space that comes with not having full access. I felt exactly the same way each time before I've done the switch from iOS to Android (three times so far).

So, I'm back with Wordpress now.  By using this self-hosted platform, I can basically do whatever I want whenever I want. I've been here before, and it's familiar territory.

Now you might ask “But why don't you host a Ghost blog yourself?” and it's a very good question. I tried doing exactly that a couple of times, but the setup isn't as straight forward as installing Wordpress. And I'm not even sure if self-hosted Ghost has plugin support the way Wordpress does, once again I want to be able to customize things my own way. Oh, and I'm really lazy. ;)

The next thing on my to-do list is to find a theme I feel I can live with because I really don't like the way the default theme looks.
