Hello World

My name is Ari Patrick, and this blog - my little slice of the internet - is where I intend to share my experiences, thoughts, and musings on topics such as: project management, game development, electronics tinkering, hard cider brewing, and more! This is not my first attempt at blogging, but there are some significant differences from my prior attempt:

  • Transition from Wordpress to Ghost
  • Transition from shared hosting to VPS hosting
  • Transition from Dreamhost to Digital Ocean (referral | normal)
  • Writing about the things I <3 and that interest me

In future posts I'll likely dive into the reasoning behind some of the aforementioned transitions, but, for now, the major take-away is that by analyzing the components that made up my blog (hosting, software, etc.) & researching alternate solutions, I have settled on a solution much more suitable to my needs & desires! So what is this solution, you ask?

As of this writing, the blog is powered by a Digital Ocean VPS (512MB memory, 1 core processor, 20GB SSD, 1TB transfer) running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS & the Ghost blogging platform. Simple & sweet, but I have big plans in store for it!

Well that about sums it up! I'm excited to be writing again, and truly hope you'll enjoy my many (albeit seemingly random) musings to come!
