    Pros: 

    Simple design, open source, friendly community, easy domain set up, customizable themes

    Cons: 

    more support to use the open source version with Mac

    I tried running the open source version of Ghost on my Mac but decided to go with Ghost Pro. I love it! The design is simple and intuitive. Plus I love that using Ghost Pro means I support the open source community. Great team building this product!

Happy to answer any questions! :)
@johnonolan watching you pitch Branson at #ces2015. You're the most passionate so far that's for sure. You make it sound like a calling. I was thinking "I'll drink this kool aid." Signed up immediately
@lovethecool Thank you so much! I really appreciate that :) So cool that you looked this up on Product Hunt while I was on stage.
@johnonolan totally. how awesome is CES. Love it more and more every year. Never understand why people complain about it. It's inspiring! You must be psyched to chill on Branson's island!
Terrible!!!!!! AVOID Ghostblog! I had the most horrible experience with ghost blog (hosted), they essentially called me a liar. When I said that my posts were deleted. Eight emails later showing that those "deleted" posts still had google indexed they finally admitted an upgrade had deleted them. I asked for them back they would only send an achieved Json file which is still missing articles and photos. In addition they aren't letting me cancel the account! Their features are so limited and so expensive + terrible customer service!!! AVOID!!!!!
I gave up on Medium because they refuse to give us a paywall and ability to embed an eCommerce widget to get paid. What is your approach?
Thank you so much for keeping Ghost open source as well. I'm also really excited to hear the plans that are being made for indie journalists (like myself) on the platform.
