Ghost allows you to write and publish your own blog with a simple, clean and focused user interface. It also has a smart writing screen. Markdown is presented on the left and a live preview is provided on the right. Ghost also includes a simplified, customizable analytics dashboard.

  1. Ghost looks like an awesome blogging platform that would actually let me focus enough to write in it's control panel.

    WordPress is so confusing now a days with the 1,500 "plugins" that (sarcasm>>) oh so nicely converge across one another in such a beautifully modular fashion.. Not.... lol.

    Ghost looks cool. Trying it now in your cloud; :)

  2. Ghost is awesome platform, especially speed as it's written in node.js. We made performance test Ghost and Wordpress to compare them. Ghost handles 1000 concurrent users on 512 Mb cloud server and Wordpress handles less than Ghost.
