Although WordPress has been around for 17 years already, Ghost is a new contender in the already crowded content management system world. WordPress has taken over the world like our storm.
Ghost started in 2013 by former WordPress employee John O’Nolan. Ghost had a successful Kickstarter campaign back in the days. During the campaign, Ghost was branded as the WordPress alternative but “just for bloggers.”
Unlike WordPress, Ghost is built on NodeJS. Both WordPress and Ghost have a self-hosted and hosted option.
