Hi Hunters! Today we're announcing Ghost for Journalism, which is a service and a product and a service to build products! In short: We're dedicating our engineering team this year to helping build 3 new independent publications, as well as customising the features of Ghost itself to suit their use-cases. We're super excited about it :) Ghost as a product is 3.5 years old now, and has matured tremendously since its early prototypal Kickstarter launch. This is our way of taking the next step, and looking for even bigger challenges. I wrote a bit more about the progression and the direction over in the announcement blog post: https://blog.ghost.org/journalism Of course, happy to answer any questions -- and always super curious to meet any journalists or independent publishers who are looking for better technology to help them.

@tyvdh Really appreciate the kind words and all of the support, Tyler ❤️ Couldn't have gotten to this point without all the Kickstarter backers who believed in the idea from day 1

@johnonolan Congrats on the launch and important milestone! Looking forward to how you work out the payments. A platform for supporting journalists reporting in regions that do not offer modern payment gateways due to complex finance systems / non-transparent governments would be a big boon. Something like Stripe Atlas catered specifically for Journalists comes to mind.

@muloka We've got so many ideas around this, but we're mainly really looking forward to working with a few great publishers and building for IRL use-cases. Payments is so key to the future of news.

Oh, this is exciting! Building a program to build the next batch of sustainable publications sounds like a tough goal but a much needed one. The ghost team are the ones to do it too!
