My Main Beef With Ghost
Ghost is a great platform.
I’ve been using it for the past year as a sort of “catch-all” whenever I have a brilliant new idea for a website but know deep down that I’m just going to scrap it in a week. It’s flexible, it’s beautiful, and if you look at some of the sites that have been made with it you can get a sense of an immense, untapped, power. Yet, for me, I can never seem to escape one simple issue. Ghost is slow and unstable.
Now, I should clarify that when I use Ghost I use it on ghost.org’s lowest-paid hosting tier–what can I say? I’m cheap.
I understand that I’m paying for “scraping by”, but is this tier warrant for needless crashing and nearly minute long load times? How heavy is Ghost?!
It’s this that has kept me on Svblte for my main blog, despite the apparent stagnation of the platform from its developers. Until there’s a lighter and cheaper alternative, Svbtle still stands untouched in the space of easy, clean, blogging.
