Ghost/Wordpress Article -> NodeBB post

I may be looking into making this myself at some point down the road but I have a lot of things going on that will slow me down. In case someone here can get to this (and probably have an easier time than I) faster than me, I wanted to share the idea. The most difficult aspect of this idea is I believe it will likely result in needing a plugin for both NodeBB and the blog engine.
I plan to host a Ghost CMS blog and use the NodeBB commenting engine plugin. What I want is the ability to post new blog post to Ghost CMS and have a NodeBB forum thread created. Ideally, this thread in NodeBB would be indicated with some kind of special badge showing that this post is really a link to the blog.
I think what I would probably like to do is also integrate the comment engine functionality into this plugin as the aim of this plugin is to try to unify these systems a little bit. My main goal is to give the blog the same interactivity a forum sees. The blog will act similar to a high-quality forum thread so I'd like the users to be able to interact the same way.
If no one here wants to tackle this, it will at least serve as a discussion to help guide me when I give it a shot.
- From Ghost CMS select that post will also create a NodeBB thread (select category)
- NodeBB will create a "symbolic" link to the blog post. A fake listing that links to the blog
- Enable voting on article (tied to the nodeBB votes system)
Any reason the plugin itself doesn't work for you? It does require you to actually click the button to create the post, although I assume it can be automated for Ghost (we just tended to make it a little more generic so it works with WordPress, etc.)
