Describing my first diaspora* pod, and the challenges I overcame along the way.
The thing that really got on my tits about hosting my own blog with platforms like Ghost was that there was a database involved and whenever there was an accidental cock-up, I was never able to successfully restore the whole thing intact.

It turns out that I could, but not without a few head-scratchers.
