    Ghost would be a terrible choice for something like this, because it's inherently focused on publishing and much harder to modify to do things which are not-publishing (like creating a beautiful portfolio site). WordPress is a pretty great choice here for a ubiquitous underlying base platform, and working via API is a huge step up in being able to create a slick custom experience.

    Craft is not overly suited to Semplice (Mainly due to licensing considerations) - but is a stunningly architected platform, and one which we're taking a lot of inspiration from. (I actually think there's a lot WP could learn from Craft, too)

    Overall though, short of building out a completely custom back end, WP is a really great choice for a product like this :)

    I find this debate bizarre. It's very short-sighted. A bunch of designers debating how to design an icon - instead of how to design an experience that doesn't need a save button. This is 2013.
