30 Elegant Themes for Ghost

A year ago, finding a blogging platform that focused on blogging was impossible. Even content creation platforms that advertised as having an easy set-up and were specifically for bloggers seemed to focus mostly on the creation of the layout of a blog. For instance, WordPress has some amazing news and magazine themes, but it certainly isn’t a quick set-up. Tumblr themes are a bit simpler but still come with some bells and whistles that many found annoying. Bloggers just wanted to be able to quickly set up a simple but professionally designed blog and start publishing.

John O’Nolan was one such blogger who became frustrated enough with the situation that he hired Hannah Wolfe as lead developer, received funding through Kickstarter, and created a simple blogging platform called Ghost. With so many supporters due to blogging platform ire already, Ghost quickly received the funding it needed to launch on 14 October 2013. The other good news is that there are themes for more than just writers. Portfolio ghost themes are also emerging.

So, if you are a blogger or a designer looking to set up a simple blogging or even portfolio platform, Ghost is one platform that brings content back to the forefront on the web. In fact, below is a list of 30 of our favorite ghost themes so far. All are very elegant and, most importantly, provide a clean layout to help your content shine.
