Pretty new to ghost and certainly not an experienced publisher by any stretch of the imagination.
I’m just wondering what sort of workflow people use when writing posts?
I usually have a couple of posts on the go at a time. I’ve been using Ulysses on Mac to write and publish posts. I like being able to organise in folders and search etc - as well as being able to easily work on my iPad and iPhone (in a pinch).
But I kinda miss the ‘cards’ in the ghost online editor.
Just wondering how others do it, and why they do what they do?
Looking forward to any responses.
I only use my computer so far to write blog posts in Ghost. It kind of sucks there is no official iOS/android app for managing a ghost blog.
I Recently moved from WP and I just keep sticking to how I wrote posts over there. I usually start with a great headline, summing up the post, then a short intro, followed with a headline. I also have “promised” myself and my readers that I should always have at least one image and one link in each post. The image is preferably inside the content, but if I can’t find a good image, the featured image will do.
I also have merged my blogs I used to run over with WP, and it’s absolutely amazing to have all of them finally at the same place. Now whenever I write a post, no matter language or subject - all of my posts will be crawled and therefore easier to find for other readers. I do this thanks to collections and internal tags. I also self-host, currently on Digital Ocean with the cheapest droplet so I can edit my themes. The collections feel like seperate blogs, thanks to the amazing opportunity of changing out the
meta_description. I love it!
The only thing I miss is analytics for page views, since none of my readers have signed up for newsletters yet or paid stuff. Otherwise, Ghost is absolutely amazingsauce.
