Ghost Blog Platform: A Lesson in UX and Investing

I’ve been raving about Ghost for a long time. I loved it so much, I specially signed up on Kickstarter to back it. It recently open its doors to the public and I have to say, I have never vacillated so quickly between delight and disappointed in my life. It was my personal failure for…
