Exporting your content is an excellent option to have, especially when dealing with blogging applications. In Ghost, the export process accumulates a JSON file of all your blog’s pages and posts. When generated, the file can be imported into a different Ghost instance or a completely different application. Most blogging platforms fully support the JSON file format; therefore, you will be able to transfer your content with ease. In this tutorial, we are going to explore the export option in Ghost and guide you on how to use it. Whenever you are - Let’s jump right into it!
