Pros: Ghost was quite easy to set up and extremely easy to use. For a content producer and blogger, this is the best CMS I've used this far, and way better than Wordpress in usability. This is really a software for writers. Excellent desktop app, too!

Cons: You need some IT savviness if you want to manage Ghost yourself and not host it on their platform (which is quite expensive). It's maybe not the most versatile CMS and if you need a big e-commerce site this probably isn't for you.

Overall: Ghost gave us an extremely easy and quick way to set up a blogging site. And it's a joy to use.

Pros: Super easy to get started but still with so much room for tweaking and customizing. I built my side project entirely on Ghost and remained a happy customer for over two years, before I wanted more advanced features (integrated shop, forum, etc) that required me to look elsewhere.

Cons: I can't find anything bad to say about Ghost it's been a joy to use their product, I'll use it again for all my future projects, and I'd happily recommend it to my friends and colleagues.

Overall: Ghost helped me quickly get started with my website, taking care of everything else so that I could focus on writing and building content.

Pros: The simplicity and cleanliness of this software makes blogging easy. It is open source so it is also free and you can add improvements as you see fit. The community surrounding this software is quite helpful and you can find help in many forums. Overall, it is an astoundingly simple and easy to use software that doesn't take any time out of writing. You don't have to work too hard, you can just focus on writing.

Cons: It is rather limited to just writing. It does not have all of the awesome features and plug-ins that you can add with Wordpress. So while it is a nice and easy software to use, you will find yourself limited if you want to do more with it than just publish plain text blog articles.

Overall: Easy usability

Pretty good blog tool!

Pros: It's open source, easy to use and quit straightforward. It will only get better and better with time.

Cons: Only con: it could use some more options and themes, extra features. I definitely think they will be added over time

Pros: A nice user interface which makes the process of creating content very pleasant. I like how straightforward and lightweight Ghost platform is.

Cons: I think it could have some extra features in order to enable full content management instead of "just" blog and news articles.

Clean and modern UI for personal blog.

Pros: I love the simplicity of the dashboard. No features that I don't need, very clean and responsive.
Active development, and growing community.

Cons: It does not have as many themes/plugins available as WordPress. The community is still growing.
There are also some features missing, such as private posts.
In terms of personal blogs, this is enough, but definitely need a lot more work to make it available for business. Need support for better SEO, ACL, and security.

Pros: The simple and clean blogging platform based on markdown which already provides simple inline formattings. Most importantly is opensource.

Cons: Is expensive than other platforms within the ghost domain for a lone blogger. Bit difficult to learn being new platform.

Pros: This software is SO easy to set up and use. You should probably know a little markdown (which would take 5 seconds to learn, or you can use the built-in cheat sheet/display panes), but this makes blogging great.

Cons: It's relatively new, so it's not nearly as feature-dense as something with a plugin market like Wordpress.

Pros: Ghost is a great platform to organize your blogs. Their out of the box template is great, yet this still allows you to add custom code or create other templates. The team collaboration functionality is great as well. One of the better blog platforms I have seen.

Cons: Slight learning curve on understanding the markup, but after 1 or 2 posts it will not be a problem. Otherwise, I don't see any downside to this product.

Comments: We use Ghost for our company blog, and it's been easy for our non-technical staff to pick up and use. My only complaint is that we didn't instantly upgrade when new versions came available and now seem to be stuck because our last couple attempts to actually upgrade have failed.

Aside from that, the editor is easy and straightforward to use.
