Blogging with Ease: Best Resources for Ghost


by:Tara Horner

01-resources-ghost-platform-ghost“Finally! A new blogging service that can compete with WordPress! It’s called Ghost and was just released this year on October 14. So far, it has proven to be exactly what the founder, John O’Nolan, envisioned – a simple, clean, easy, no-nonsense publishing platform for bloggers and writers. Yet more than just content creators are using Ghost. Some of the recently released themes work beautifully as a clean portfolio website for photographers and other artists. But an easy-to-use platform isn’t the only perk: Ghost is an open source platform, meaning that it is completely free. And so are many of the themes and resources.

Why a New Platform?For years, John O’Nolan grew more and more frustrated at the lack of complex blogging systems, so he wrote a blog post late in 2012 and found out that many others were complaining of the same problem. In the past, WordPress used to be the go-to blogging platform, but as our own Sufyan bin Uzayr points out in his article “I Love You WordPress! But…” , “the speed and swift operation that WP was once known for, is continuously being sacrificed at the altar of each new release”.

Nolan wanted to create a new software program that brought speed and ease of use back to publishing online, so he started a project for Ghost on Kickstarter and raised more than enough capital to get Ghost started. Hannah Wolfe came on board as development lead, and a solution to the worldwide blogging problem came to fruition.” To read further please click here:
