Introduction and Project Overview
Hi I'm Susan with Digital-Tutors and this is Creating a Blog with Ghost. In this course we'll learn about Ghost, an elegant blogging platform created with only one purpose in mind, creating a beautiful blog and efficient content creation. We'll discuss everything from choosing themes and making basic customizations to our theme to learning how to use Ghost's simple approach to writing to maximize content creation efficiency. While we'll be going through everything step by step, a basic understanding of HTML and CSS will help you understand the process of customizing a theme. If you feel comfortable opening and editing HTML files with a text editor and writing basic CSS selectors, you'll be able to follow along in this course. While we'll discuss some technical aspects of Ghost itself, you don't need to understand the technical discussion to be able to create your blog or to follow along in this course, so if this sounds good, let's get started in our next lesson by learning what Ghost is and why it was created.
