Chapter 1. The First Steps with Ghost

The first thing you'll need to do to get started with Ghost is to set up a brand new blog.

When Ghost was first privately released to its Kickstarter backers, it was something of an arduous process to get the ball rolling, which was to be expected in the very early stages of such a brand new platform. However, it has not taken long for brilliant minds to put themselves to the task of making this process straightforward.

In this chapter, you'll learn about the following topics:

  • Ghost's official hosting
  • The basic use of Ghost, including what to do immediately after installation and how to navigate within the admin interface
  • The essentials of post management in Ghost, including an introduction to Markdown syntax
