I was just wondering, has anyone checked out the Ghost blogging platform? I was a backer of it on Kickstarter and have to say I am very impressed with it so far. It is currently ringing bells with when XenForo first started out, which can only be a good thing. I mean, look where XenForo is now!
If you're looking for a sleek blogging platform, it is well worth checking out.
I should point out, it runs on node.js so may not be good for everyone. Easy enough to run locally though, through BitNami (if you just wanna try it out quickly before you waste any time).
