I'm trying out Ghost for the first time. I've wanted to find an alternative to Blogger for a while now but just hadn't put the effort into it. Blogger is tremendously easy to blog with but the presentation of the blog itself really shows its age. I wanted to find something with the ease of Blogger's editing and at its price point (free) but with modern aesthetics and behaviors. I researched my choices and consistently found Ghost at or near the top of most lists. On a tip from Scott Hanselman I used the Deploy to Azure button at the Ghost-Azure GitHub repo. It worked beautifully and I had an instance up at http://developingdane.azurewebsites.net within minutes.
