Adding Comments, Analytics etc to Ghost

Now that I had Ghost is running, it wass time to tune it and make it a complete blog: i need to add Analytics, Comments, Site Map and social linking.

##Google Analytics OK, i initially decided to go straight for the new Google Tag Manager and while setting up its Containers realised i’ll only be running 1 tag so why bother and switched to including the Analytics .js only. I found these steps quite usefull.

##Comments I decided to use Google+ to enable comments on my blog: it was free, easy and it links to my Google+ account and posts (always good for SEO). Adding the following code to content/themes/casper/post.hbs did the trick.

##Social linking The default Casper I am using has 3 social buttons at the bottom right, i moved them to the top, for the default choice of Google+, Twitter and Facebook were enough for me.
