Ghost Blogging Platform – a Cleaner Way to Present Your Content - Page 2
It uses the markdown editor and you get an instant preview on the right side. There are certain mark-ups to follow while you write, but you don’t need to worry because it seems pretty simple to a non-techy person like my dad!
The ghost blogging platform also has a mobile application through which you can post your content while you are not around a laptop or a personal computer. The developers of Ghost believe that inspiration for good content can strike anywhere, having a mobile device with you with the Ghost App installed should let you publish your idea instantly before it gets lost later in the day.
Many a times we come across websites where we are presented with a fixed set of “links” to other articles. It really is not very innovative way to display your content which is on your website or the blog. The Ghost developers have come out with an interactive way which can expose your previous posts and help visitors get to it. That can be seen in the screenshot below.
The panel on the side can be used to scroll through your previous posts. This, I feel is much better than the widely used “most popular” or “recent posts” block of links on the side of the every page on blog. I have to say, well done on so many new and excellent features.
You can go and help the Ghost developers by lending a helping hand in launching this product. They have started a “kickstarter” campaign which basically helps them fund their project based on the donations that people make to them. The code is soon going to be open source, so this definitely is not a plan to make the developers rich, but instead the money would be invested in the project.
