Review of Ghost 5.0
What can I say? I have been a satisfied user since 2021. A number of frustrations have been resolved in 5.0, such as the choice of whether or not to post a newsletter on the site or tweaking the features of the newsletter. The backoffice works quickly and conveniently. The advantage of Ghost I see is that what the platform can't do won't break, a big difference from generic platforms where you can mess things up. It's seems to be designed to be a platform for people who would rather spend their time creating content than managing the platform on which the content resides. The support is fast, but once it was very much by the book.

So far, LOVE 5.0 compared to previous versions. The multiple newsletter offerings present really cool new ways to monetize and audience, and the updated analytics is much more detailed than before. I feel very excited about the future of Ghost!

Review of Ghost 5.0
I recently migrated off of WordPress and onto Ghost. The migration was flawlessly executed. Customer service is amazing, and my website is not only beautiful but screaming fast. The creator community is awesome and I’m learning so many new things about how to build a publication and community using best practices. What can I say, I’m in love. It’s well-supported and fundamentally sound.

Thanks Sara! I guess the biggest differences are that Ghost is pretty much the only open source, independent platform with 0% fees — these tend to be the main reasons we hear about from people switching to Ghost from another platform :)
