One nice thing about having multiple blogs on @write_as is that I can start writing a post for this microblog, and if it turns into something more that I want to share on my main blog, I can just switch the blog it's going to publish to.

Made more progress on my weekend project, a tool for generating images like this for social media.

Right now, it's an open source command-line tool written in Go, with a few configurable options. You can find the AGPL-licensed code on GitHub and start using it now!

@paul Just added support for configuring the size this morning!

@paul Thanks! Yep, that's on my list -- I think it'd be worth supporting other social media formats. Any particular uses you had in mind for this?

Father of beatuful little girl. Husband of good and beatiful wife. Book reader who works in book store. Lives in Zemun in Serbia. I love to read classical and modern russian literature. Pelevin's Iphuck 10 blown me away. I tried writing, but i'm better in reading. 😂

@mrb @jordisalvia Awesome! Mentioned elsewhere, but I plan on adding a web interface / API next.

If you have any thoughts on what would help out your use case, I'm all ears!

Working on a small tool to generate an image from a bit of text, made especially for any WriteFreely-based blog.

Basically, you'll use this to highlight something you wrote along with your blog URL, so you can then share it to Pixelfed or Instagram.

Hello, Fediverse! My name is Brandon. I have been blogging since 2008. I write about productivity, technology, books, religion, coffee and tea, and Texas. I joined Mastodon to share my work and learn from other writers, but also to escape Twitter, which has proven to be useful for neither of these things. You can find my blog at

Hi - just thought I'd join and see if could provide some inspiration and interesting conversation.

Currently I mostly blog about software / tech but I'm hoping to write a lot more this year!

You can find me here:

I'm TBYB; Don't want to use my real name and I'm too lazy to come up with a pseudonym.

I'll be honest here: I'm here purely for the writing and occasionally talking about what I'm up to. I get enough noise about politics, the news, and general internet drama daily.

I'm also here to overcome my crippling fear of inadequacy when it comes down to my own writings. All advice/feedback is welcome.

I flip between short stories, long-form reviews, and occasional journal entries. Anyway,

Hey everyone! My name’s Molly and I’m completely new to Mastodon. I write song lyrics and poems among other things.
I’m excited to meet folks and use this space as an outlet for writing!

I’m Lola - I was born and raised in Ibadan, Nigeria but have lived in the US most of my life. I teach biomedical informatics and work on AI in medicine and telehealth research.

I also write short stories - literary, historical, and speculative. My first book will be published in 2022 by Amistad (North America) and Trapeze Books (UK).

I love to travel, read, talk politics (I’m pretty liberal). I’m addicted to Scrabble. I speak Yoruba, Igbo and I’m learning Spanish on Duolingo.

I just joined today. I'm trying to get things figured out and my profile all set up. I look forward to interacting with others here. .

@dusiehstgutaus Good to know! I did go with Pop on one of their machines, so I'm excited to try it out!
