Ghost != Medium

Dave Winer:

Think about Medium this way. It’s a big public legal pad. In a perfect world, no one owns the pad. When you want to write something you tear off a sheet, write, when you’re done you tack it up to a global bulletin board where everyone can see it. […] Ghost is not such a place, and neither is WordPress.

There has to be space for a pinboard.in for blogging/writting. A one-person operation that can renders pretty static html and can survive with respectful display ads or non paid accounts.
