I am a WordPress front-end designer (using Genesis and child themes). I don’t code, other than using the Inspect Element function to figure out CSS and trawling Google. I always get by.
I am soon going to create a blog which I anticipate will see a lot of traffic over time (here’s hoping). I very much like the idea of restricting content for premium members, so Ghost has me covered on that.
Okay…so I love Ghost’s simplicity and the themes are much better out of the box than any I use (I use StudioPress themes, which are good, but nowhere near as beautiful as, say, what Aspire Themes produce.
But…and here it is…
…I am hesitant. I wrote a long list of challenges I see with Ghost, and I can’t quite shake them.
I am now hung up on SEO and it seems Ghost has downfalls in this regards in terms of lack of control when compared with WordPress.
I also note the absence of a media library.
Am I overthinking this?
I just can’t help thinking Ghost may be too infantile for me to invest in, given my experience with WordPress. But WordPress is a hassle to maintain, and the themes are so 2008.
I’m kind of stuck.
I guess I’m asking if you can persuade me.
Thanks in advance!
