My blogging adventures with my friend have been like a whirlwind trip down the rabbit hole. She has gone through Blogger, Tumblr, WordPress.com and has a Medium account. She aims to have her blog and her image galleries up and running in two weeks time and she has seen a Ghost.
Simple to use – Ghost is just a blogging platform.
Ghost: A beautifully designed platform dedicated to one thing: Publishing.
“It’s beautifully designed, completely customisable and completely Open Source. Ghost allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even fun to do. It’s simple, elegant, and designed so that you can spend less time messing with making your blog work – and more time blogging.”
Ghost: Hosted Platform Preview
“Ghost is a simple blogging platform that is available in two variants: Self-hosted Gho.st and Hosted Gho.st. You can install Ghost blogging platform on your local computer or server before installing on a live server so that you can get used to it before using it professionally.
Like a ghost writer, Ghost, is your ghost publisher. It does the hard work anonymously, getting your content online so you can focus on the most important things: Your ideas. Your content.
Email clients have had split-view for more than a decade, because it makes sense. Ghost would have a split view when managing your content so you could browse through your content from the admin panel, without having to edit it.”
There will be a free 1 month trial available for everyone who wants to give the platform a try. Additionally, Kickstarter backers will receive account credit based on the rewards which they selected during the campaign. The pricing of the platform when it launches to the public are found in the Hosted Platform Preview.
