Years ago, I thought having my own site implemented by myself would show sills and value to someone reading it. The problem is that it required more work than I had time to maintain, and more effort to publish posts than with a pre-built system like Ghost.
So after years I have abandoned the custom site and moved the posts to this blog on Gost(pro). In a few months/years I may move it again. Ghost(pro) made it very easy to get this setup in a few hours, including migrating posts, and customizing the theme.
Only time will tell if this gets me to write more, once project schules again impact my time.
