Ghost blog

I don’t write about a blog written by a ghost. But, I want to tell you about a blogging platform, called Ghost1.

Ghost was created to simplify the process of online publishing for individual bloggers as well as online publications, Wikipedia says2.

The project was initiated due to the complexity of WordPress. That said, WordPress is growing yet becoming more than a blogging platform. So, Ghost try to bring back how blogging should be: simple.

Simple, eh?

Blogging with Ghost needs a knowlegde of Markdown3 syntax. As you can see at above image, you type your post in the left pane with Markdown, and the right pane will show you the live preview.

To run your blog using Ghost, you need at least a VPS, as it runs on Node.js which most of traditional shared hosting don’t offer the service.
