I'm very familiar with WordPress and have used it for almost 10 years, but Ghost themes seem to be the new thing.

I for one really like them and think it keeps everything really clean

I'd never move from WordPress to another type of site dev/CMS unless there's a significant performance improvement, better security or something momentous to lure me into spending hours learning and testing a new dev tool.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I am referring to Ghost themes for WordPress, like this: wptavern.com/casper-a-free-ghost-style-wordpress-theme-based-on-underscores

Was not thinking of the overall CMS, oops

I too use Wordpress for my blog. I have used it for many years and because it is so easy to use I have stayed there.

What is Ghost never heard of it. I would like to check it out because I need a reliable blogging platform I hate wordpress as you need too many plugins that end up running too many php scripts at once. Not good when you on a shared hosting!

Ghost is up and rising CMS, mashable said that it could be popular in future.
But for now nothing can beat WordPress and its huge community of developers and users.
So, time will show is Ghost really that good.

Ghost can be used if one needs a simple website.
Ghost is a faster blogging system and offers flexibility for databases, as it is erected on JavaScript and use Nod.js structure.

WordPress is one of the most predominant platforms accessible for making a blog or a website. WordPress is built on PHP and MySQL.
WordPress is good for customization and frequent design changing needs.
Hosting providers offer 1-click auto installation of WordPress.
WordPress offers attractive websites that can be made in quick time.
WordPress has clean code that is SEO friendly and this is affirmed by the fact that at present more than 60 million websites use WordPress as a blogging platform.
