Been wanting to put up a blog for some time, and Ghost appealed to me. Nice and clean, and also written in Node.js. My problem was that I wanted to host it myself on some online hosting service, preferably for free.

Found out the other day that through my MSDN subscription I have a couple of credits for hosting stuff on Azure every month. So, after following this guide[1], I am up and running with Ghost for free on a custom domain in just a couple of minutes!

Hopefully I'll find something to write here as well.. Really need to start blogging..


Edit: I realized that if I didn't care about the custom domain i wouldn't event have to spend those Azure credits!
