Best blog software for a startup


(Justin Gordon) #1

I’ve got a new startup effort, and as much as I like personal blogging using jekyll, I really need something more user friendly for the business folks to create articles.

What’s the best recommendation for easy to use blogging linked to a discourse forum for discussion?

Wordpress with the discourse plugin?

@codinghorror, have you considering offering such an all-in-one service?

Thanks in advance for any advice. This is the sort of thing you don’t want to have to change in the near future once you set this up.

Just saw this:

Seems that square.com is using ghost.com, and is @codinghorror.

Yep. Wordpress has a huge ecosystem of themes and plugins that will let you get all sorts of stuff up and running with very little effort. It’s hard to recommend anything else.

@Tom_Newsom, that’s similar to what my marketing advisor just told me. I’m looking for some good reasons to choose ghost or wordpress in conjunction with Discourse (note, discourse is the constant here!)

WordPress is always a good choice!
