New to Blog Creation Category: Ghost A non-profit, open-source technology for journalism
Made for love, not for profit, Ghost, is a non-profit, open source, content management platform focused solely on professional publishing. Their mission is to create the best open source tools for independent journalists and writers across the world, to facilitate a a real impact on the future of online media.
My apologies for not including this interesting blogging platform in the database! It was first launched in 2013 and now Ghost powers an incredible range of websites; from individual bloggers who are just getting started, to large teams of writers and editors at some of the largest organizations in the world.
They also have a handy comparison guide on how Ghost compares with WordPress. Ghost says they are more cost effective than WordPress. Wait, I thought WordPress was free. Yes, but not if you require specific plugins for various publishing needs. This is apparently where Ghost really shines. Both WordPress & Ghost are open source and flexible, but the main difference, according to Ghost, is that Ghost is explicitly focused on doing one thing really well: Publishing.
In my quest to find out more about how WordPress and Ghost differ I came across a thoughtful comparison on CMSWire. There are more blogging choices than just WordPress or Ghost and you’ll find them all in PRToolfinder’s Blog Creation Tools category.
