My move from WordPress to Ghost officially kicks off tonight

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Fast forward to today and I’m getting ready to officially kick off the process. I know quite a few people have been interested in making the move to Ghost so I wanted to share more details on how I’m making the move.

First things first, I know what I know and I know what I don’t know. I know very little about the backend details of blogging platforms. Don’t know much about tinkering with WordPress, and the same goes for Ghost, so I know I need to bring in an expert.

After doing tons of research the same name kept coming up, Dan Rowden (@dr), so I did some research, chatted with him on Twitter and decided to move forward with him on all fronts, from making the move to theme to customizations to hosting.

So here’s a quick overview of how this is all coming together:

  • For hosting I’ll be Gloat, a hosting service Dan runs specifically for Ghost sites
  • Dan has sent me detailed instructions on making the move, and it’s pretty seamless, essentially, install a plugin that runs an export, then upload it onto my new Ghost site and send Dan the zip files and he takes care of the media
  • After this I’ll be moving over to a Ghost theme and Dan will be helping to customize it so I can bring my awesome sponsor banners over with me

One thing I’m really digging about the process so far is that I’m dealing directly with a person, and as I said above, someone who knows a lot more about Ghost than I do.

I’ll continue to update everyone as I move forward. Tonight I’m installing the plugin and running the export so the process is officially kicking off
