The change from a wordpress blog to ghost has been rocky to say the least.
It's done, not it just needs lots of configuration and content... it sounds so easy when you put it like that!
Most of this isn't for anyone but myself, eventually people may find some of the information useful and where possible I will go back and fix outdated content or as needed simply list exact versions.
I have manually imported all of the blog posts I could from the wordpress install I was previously using. I've lost a lot of content but hey that's what you get when you ignore a website for 2 - 3 years.
