@Cheri Hi. I've been using Ghost (hosted) since February. I think it is a fantastic platform, especially for blogging. In some ways it's basic; no plugins needed, none of the WP baggage but quite fast. The main downside for the Ghost Pro package is cost. I've paid £266 for the year, plus around £40 from Themeforest for a theme. I wrote a post on the topic which you may find useful, and as always, I'm keeping the matter under review. With micro.blog and write.as too, I may need to find a cheaper home for the long-form content.
