First off, I have to start this post off with an admission. This is a WordPress platform, and I don’t see switching the platform of this blog or the website in the near future. That being said, if I were doing a blog as a personal platform I would certainly consider trying Ghost. Ghost is a new blogging platform that launched on Kickstarter in May 2013. What makes Ghost different is its simple backend user interface that simplifies blogging and allows the user to give more focus to publishing quality content.
