What powers this blog?

Ghost and Docker!

Run Ghost blog in a Docker container by doing:

docker run --name ghost-blog -d -p 80:2368 alexellis2/ghost-on-docker:latest

That's it!! Cannot be simpler... (in fact it can ;) )

Will it hold the load?

Customizations

Correct the url settings as an example and commit

In the launched shell, manually edit the url field in config.js:

vi config.js

Then commit the changes to a new image:
