The Ghost blogging platform officially launched to the public the other day.
I currently run this site on WordPress and it’ll most likely stay that way as I like to use it as a testing ground for work and freelance projects that run on the platform. I have, however, in recent years tuned down my personal WordPress configuration to get back to its blogging roots. Simplicity is key for that.
Ghost is aiming to do just that. It returns to just blogging.
Its text editor, which is a markdown nerd’s dream, looks fantastic. The dashboard is a nice design and the theming appears to be a simple enough project. I’ll definitely be giving this a go as soon as I get some time to do so. I suggest you go download/install now if you’re looking to host your own blogging setup.
