I want to switch blog systems. Looking for a minimal blog platform

I feel that WordPress has become more of a CMS and has too many features that I don't need (or want). Also, I've noticed a significant performance problem. In all fairness, this could be a problem with the plugins I'm using and not WordPress, but it's still a problem nonetheless.

I did a few quick Google searches and ran across a promising (future) blog platform going by the name Ghost.

Anybody else have a suggestion for something that's real NOW and like Ghost?

I may end up developing something myself, but everyone knows how much we developers hate "reinventing the wheel"
