I've been wanted to start a blog, but I didn't want to just use any SaaS one-click-start blogger apps that's provided by many major web-hosting companies. Also, I was picky on which blogging CMS that I wanted to use; and the price to host was one of the short stopper. At first I thought I could use Amazon AWS, then I found out it's going to cost me $40 a month?! I wanted to have full access to the web-server but I don't want to get charged with a lot of monthly cost to host my site. I am glad that I've found the 1&1 as my hosting company and Ghost as my CMS, I like how the CMS admin site is structured, it is simple and clean.
