    Hi, I'm interested to know about good alternatives to Wordpress, that I can install on my own server.

    I'm not considering Joomla and Drupal, they don't suite me.

    W130SN, thank you for such an extensive reply!

    I need it for simple blogging, for start, but I would like it to have the option to be upgrated to a full blown CMS.

    What are the experiences with Ghost?

    I have never used it but I think others on BHW have said it is a good option/alternative to WP.

    There are several alternatives that exist.
    You can try b2evolution. It is a nice blogging platform
    But can you tell why you don't want wordpress?

    I will probably use Wordpress, since it suits my needs the best!
    But I just wanted to know if there are any alternatives.

    Yes, I want to blog on it, but I want to increase the functionality step-by-step as the website develops.
