My Frustrating Experience with Ghost's Blog Editor

It's hard to believe it's been over six months since I started using Ghost as my blogging platform of choice. At first, I was thrilled with its simplicity and ease of use. The minimalistic design and user-friendly interface made it a breeze to create and publish blog posts. However, as time went on, I began to notice that the shine was wearing off. Specifically, I found myself growing increasingly frustrated with Ghost's blog editing functionality.

At first, it was the little things. The inability to easily format text, the lack of a decent spell-checker, and the clunky image upload process. But as I continued to use Ghost, these minor annoyances snowballed into major headaches. I found myself spending more and more time wrestling with the editor, trying to get my posts to look the way I wanted them to.

One of the biggest issues I have is with the title editing feature. It's surprisingly finicky, and I often find myself having to re-enter the title multiple times before it sticks. And don't even get me started on the auto-save feature, which seems to have a mind of its own. I've lost count of how many times I've accidentally overwritten a post because the auto-save kicked in at the wrong moment.

But the real deal-breaker for me is the lack of a decent WYSIWYG editor. I'm not a coder, and I shouldn't have to be one to create a decent-looking blog post. The fact that I have to switch back and forth between the HTML editor and the preview mode is a workflow nightmare. And don't even get me started on the formatting issues that seem to crop up out of nowhere.

I'm not sure what the future holds for me and Ghost. I've tried to make it work, I really have. But as my frustration grows, I find myself wondering if it's time to explore other options. Maybe it's time to bid farewell to the Ghost in the machine and find a new blogging platform that actually makes writing a pleasure, not a chore.
