I have known about Ghost since its KickStarter campaign. And recently they just launched the hosted platform for Ghost.

One feature I like so far is the support of a line divider. Just need three dashes in a line, it will be converted into a fancy divider. This is great for writing references and footnotes.
This is a quick blog for getting started with Ghost.
