What is the best blogging platform for startup?

I really like Ghost's simplicity, but looking for something with a bit more built-in features I don't need to code / integrate myself: comments, feedback widgets, CTAs, basic images editing (resize, crop, borders), stats, subscriptions etc.

      I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.

      Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.

      My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features

      I've used many blog editors out there, and none has proven to be as easy and user friendly as Medium.

    Personally I'd suggest a static site generator such as Hugo or Jekyll. Problem is, if you don't like the work required for Ghost, you won't like those. In terms of a platform that includes "everything but the kitchen sink", that's easily WordPress. WordPress is the most mature and feature full blogging platform out there.

    While it doesn't have many of those features (in fact, they're left out on purpose), it's flexible enough to easily build on top of, especially if you want to leverage it in combination with other tools. It's hosted, so you can get set up quickly and never worry about maintenance. And though it costs nothing to start a blog, paid plans are inexpensive, and even include SSL with any custom domain you use.
