So this is my fifth or sixth time setting up Ghost on DigitalOcean. Over the past year, I've used this setup as my personal blog.
I really like Ghost, there's no other blogging platform I've used that keeps me coming back to it. The problem I ran into this time was dependencies. Like most node projects, Ghost runs off of many dependencies which might be down or unavailable when trying to instal. For version 0.9.0, I wanted to upgrade just for the sake of having the latest version and it got messed up while trying to install some dependency.
So ignoring the past, I want to start writing and continue writing using Ghost. Hopefully, in the future the upgrade experience will be easier.
Instead of bringing the last version of the blog back up, I've let that go and I want to start fresh.
