      I like it. How much can you build your own design with Ghost? Is it more like squarespace, semplice, webflow ?

        I'd say it's more like Wordpress in that you can completely build your own theme or add one from the marketplace, rather than using a site builder.

        I chose Ghost because it doesn't use PHP (cleaner, faster, better performance) but it's more difficult to set up because hosting and domain providers are all geared towards PHP instead of Node.js powered websites. Although that will change soon with Wordpress launching Calypso. For now, Ghost is perfect because it has a CMS to quickly add posts but I also keep the control and performance like a static website.

        Hope that helps.
