Ever since Ghost was released I’ve been incredibly interested in installing and learning the platform–even toying with the idea of switching over completely. Alas, on my host, this is impossible due to Ghost’s dependency on node.js, and so I was left reeling just a bit.
It was in this fugue state over the past month that I discovered just how much I truly love WordPress again, particularly with the introduction of version 3.8 and the updates being made to the admin screen. I’m very happy with what is happening there, and I have faith in the platform as a whole. Yes, it can be a little bloated; yes the plugins aren’t always well written; but none of these things really detract from the flexibility of the system.
I’m excited to develop for WordPress again, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next.
