It's easy to use and maintain. The administration features are good. There's plenty of themes. It's easy to use overall. Also, since it's running on nodejs, performance is better than most CMS platforms. If it weren't for the lack of creation and update actions in the API, this would be the best CMS. (Yes, they exist, but they are private, not documentated and can change any second.) Unfortunately for some people like me who heavily rely on APIs for making posts, I have to stay with Wordpress for now especially since it has API clients that do everything we want.

Pros:

Configurable, Mature, Good Performance, Good UI

Cons:

API is lacking - creation and update of posts not finalized

I'd love a better API to upload posts and images from my Markdown writing workflow.
A robust api would be incredible.
Sounds interesting

I use Ghost to maintain a personal archive of notes and links to interesting discoveries. I love its simplicity and, as a Markdown user of many, many years, I love its Markdown friendly interface.

Pros:

It's lovely: ease of use, Markdown, overall elegance.

Cons:

Speaking personally, none.

Lets publishing be the core. No extraneous bumpf to get in the way. Does what it's supposed to with no distractions.

Pros:

Simple, elegant and fast. Little in the way of UI to prevent efficiency

Cons:

None that I can think of

They charge a lot for hosting, platform is restrictive (can't do pop-ups) or other features for conversion), worst is there customer service. What kind of blog site calls their customer a liar deletes there posts then I had to show them the posts still had google indexed... then finally they admitted it. They wont turn off our auto renew until we find the last four digits of the original

credit card despite a letter from our CEO. When they did retrieve the posts they were only willing to send them in incomplete Json files

Pros:

N/A - AVOID

Cons:

Deleted posts, didn't admit it, 8 emails later admitted an upgrade deleted them

Ghost is the fastest and cleanest blog platform available now. Not just the blog layouts are minimal, functional and clean, the dashboard itself also lacks any clutter which means the focus for you is on just writing, and for your reading on what you write. And that's all a blog platform should be.

Pros:

Fastest and cleanest blog platform available now

Cons:

None

I needed a quick blogging platform that was easy to write in and publish with. Found Ghost and have been loving every second I've spent writing and publishing with it.

I'm using the Ghost.io hosted version.

I'd love the ability to create course listing, or workshops as if these were pages with a couple of simple data types like dates and a custom json-id schema attached to it.

I'd love to be able to control how my referred header is shared with 3rd parties, my Content Security Policy and a few other important HTTP headers. In order to have a more secure web presence and also to have a better rating than an F in securityheaders.io, It reflects badly on my own credibility as an IT-guy.

Pros:

Fast

Simple

Good editor

Great import/export API for content migration

built-in redirects

Cons:

Missing some essential Security features like custom HTTP headers in the hosted version

No custom objects, just pages and posts
