What To Do Next

It will be a Tuesday: When that will be I cannot say.

Or it might be a Thursday.

It will be an ordinary day until 11am. Then he (or she) will be unable to sit at his (or her) desk and will find himself or herself walking towards the open air.

When he (or she) gets to the street he (or she) will be surprised to find lots of people standing in the street, on the pavements, in the road, looking like he (or she) is looking – at the buildings and then at each other.

He (or she) knew he could not continue with things the way they were. Now he (or she) wonders whether there is anyone who has a clue as to what to do next.

He (or she) is trembling and happy. Today is different.

I Started A Ghost Blog

I started a Ghost blog as an experiment because I wanted to see what I thought of being able to see the front-end finished page as I wrote. I didn’t expect much, but I find to my surprise that I like it a lot.

I could have started the blog on Ghost’s own servers, but the cost is quite high ($19/month) for the cheapest option blog that is half serious and half an experiment.

Running a site on Ghost’s servers gets you one site, 25,000 page-views per month, unlimited transfer and storage, Automatic updates and backups, Upload any theme or app, Worldwide CDN & security protection, and SSL Support.

So if you have a high-traffic site that is built around text, then it might be a solution for someone.

There are other ways to get a site up and running. You can download the source code and run it on a VPN. It is unlikely you could run it on most shared servers because of the way Ghost is built.

If I had the skills and energy to do it, I could start one on Digital Ocean for a very small monthly cost. But in the end I took the easy and cheap option – £29.00/year for a blog on TSOHost.
