Hi, first-time gitter-er. I have a question I wasn't sure where to ask and thought this might be a good place - please tell me to bugger off if not.

I'm in the planning stages of building a simple website for someone, with heavy emphasis on blogging. I am keen to use something JS-based like Keystone.js, but the client wants something very familiar and user-friendly, like WordPress. I noticed with Keystone you have to use a plugin for your rich text editor to include image insertion (beyond one headline image), and there's no out-of-the-box image upload unless you use Cloudinary.

Anyone had a good experience with a particular Node-based CMS and happy to recommend?

@SophGits out-of-the-box image upload inside a WYSIWYG?

@sebmck is that unreasonable? :-\

@SophGits not at all, was just clarifying what it was exactly you were asking for

@sebmck Yeah, I think having a somewhat substantial toolbelt will be really useful. They want, first and foremost, to have the blog-style functionality (mostly to post HQ images and video) and for there not to be a big learning curve for new admins.
