During the last 5 years blogging platforms have gained great momentum. Initially there were only 2 most popular choices available to the internet users- WordPress and Blogspot. But now a new blogging platform has emerged and it is gaining fast momentum and popularity amongst the bloggers. It is called the Ghost Blogging platform.
Dedicated to publishing:
The best thing about ghost blogging platform is that it is open source. The fact that it is open source also makes it fully customizable. The entire design is such that you can focus on what is important i.e. blogging or publishing. We have seen many platforms that are excellent but are a bit too complex; this takes all the fun away as you are required to do a lot of work to get your blog up and running but with ghost blogging platform you can get started as soon as you have an idea.
You must have noticed that while using other blogging platforms you are required to pause the work in-between in order to see how it will look when published. But with ghost blogging platform you get a live preview of your blog. There are two split screens, you edit or write in one and the other screen shows exactly what your content will look like. So the need to pause the work and hit the publish button has been completely removed from the ghost blogging platform.
Ghost offers you a completely customizable dashboard or control panel. Everything that you need can be dragged on one single page. With other platforms you are required to click on different tabs to see different information but ghost allows you to select the information you want and drag it on to your control panel so that you won’t have to click on a different tab every time you want some specific information.
Integrated with social media:
As a blogger you must understand the importance of social media. Sites like facebook and twitter can bring in a lot of traffic. For this you have to use specific plug-ins so that your blog can be integrated with social media. But ghost has done something revolutionary, every ghost blog comes ready, pre-loaded with plug-ins so that you can directly connect to your facebook or twitter and start sharing your content.
The first open source blogging platform:
Ghost is completely open source. This means that it is fully customizable without any restrictions what so ever. If you are a web designer then you can design your own theme so that your blog reflects your personality in a better way. If you are a developer then you can write your own code for plug-ins. You can also host it wherever you want. There are just no restrictions.
Portability with functionality:
Ghost is a fully responsive blogging platform for dedicated bloggers. It doesn’t matter whether you work from a mobile phone, a tablet or a desktop computer, you will find the same functionality on all devices.
