Ghost is about 9 months old now and is on a very positive trajectory.
People have been quick to adopt Ghost since it’s public release in October last year. Hosting companies have also taken steps to make it easier to use Ghost on shared hosting.
Another indicator of popularity is the sizeable number of themes available for Ghost and their sales so far on marketplaces like ThemeForest.
All of these factors clearly validate the point that Ghost has successfully created a niche for itself in the crowded CMS market and is here to stay.
