Using Ghost to catalog news events?

Hi all,

I’m setting up a site ( - nothing there yet ) to track and catalog the suppression of free speech. It’ll have self-hosted video, images, and of course, text. Would Ghost be good for this? Any themes or techniques that’d help? I’m deciding between Ghost and Jekyll.


Ghost is primarily a blogging platform. If your content fits well in the “blog post” model, then it’ll work well on Ghost. You might use tags for categorizing these events. But if you really need a bunch of custom fields, then you might want a different platform. Without knowing more about your plans, it’s hard to advise. :)
