More on Ghost and blogging platforms
itsagreatbigbeautifultomorrow said: Ghost looks really cool. In the opening video, I swear though, it said it is free and will try to remain free. But I signed up and then it told me how much it cost to have blogs. Did I miss something?
» SFB says: Ghost is open-source, meaning it’s free as in speech, meaning you can download the software and do what you want with it—as long as you have a host. (A host is something, BTW, that Ghost offers for a modest monthly fee.) Tumblr is free as in beer, which means you can use it, but you don’t own the platform and have no control over it. Ghost is a more modern platform, though the distribution model is closer to WordPress than Tumblr. — Ernie @ SFB
