Back To The Basics
I tried Ghost. I didn’t like it. I am willing to try it again in the future, but right now it is too “beta” and it gets in the way of writing.
I was trying to backfill content I previously made to populate my blog. Modifying the published date was such a hassle. Once the post was made the order of articles in the admin area is still “last created” and not “date published”. Totally uncool!
Hosting media for a post was a joke. I don’t want to upload something to a separate CDN for a post, I am cool hosting it on the server. There currently isn’t a way around that with Ghost. I’d paint you a picture, but I wouldn’t want to go through the hassle to upload it!
Another crucial point is how far along the development process is. It seems to be going slower than anticipated. Speaking as a developer I can completely understand… but as a consumer I want a little more.
