A quick for .

I've been dabbling in the Fediverse for ages with accounts on identi.ca, diaspora, friendica, gnu social & eventually Mastodon.

I love the community here & even though I might not post all that frequently, I love interacting with the wide range of users here.

This account is my 'personal' account, so plenty of / / / thoughts posts.

@lazylinux is my place for all my Linux posts & @merkaba is for all my programming.

In case you missed it, updates will now show up on our official Mastodon account for the project: @writefreely! We'll keep this account limited mostly to Write.as, the hosted WriteFreely service.

Otherwise for bigger, less frequent announcements (like new releases), you can still follow the official WriteFreely blog: @writefreely@blog.writefreely.org.

v0.13 Release Candidate 1 is here! It includes over a year of changes and improvements, from a new WYSIWYG editor to Web Monetization support to new OAuth provider support.

Read about everything in this latest release and, if you're adventurous, you can upgrade to this Release Candidate today: github.com/writefreely/writefr

If you give it a shot, please share any feedback or bug reports!

Now I'd like to give people the option to financially support without having to pay for a Write.as subscription. So today I'm launching an Open Collective page for anyone who would like to support the project.

In just a couple hours I'll be speaking with @jomc at the Internet Archive about what happened in the history of the internet when people decided to put their trust in corporations to do the job of free public libraries. You can get a free ticket to the online event here:

This is a test #WriteFreely instance on a non-ASCII domain: https://bär.writefreely.dev. This is supported by changes in #457, which automatically converts a Unicode host name for a WF instance into its Punycode representation, which is then used throughout the application, including for ActivityPub requests. As such, this blog should function just fine in the #fediverse! Feedback? Reply and mention @matt@writing.exchange.

Well, I drank coffee after 2pm today and I suppose that means still being awake at 2am.

Hi! 👋
My name is Mari. I am an Italian aspiring translator and journalist.
My studies (I've been writing my Master's Degree thesis for years now 🎻 ) have revolved around French literature, but I've dabbled in studying classic English and German lit as well.
I've always wanted to write, but something has been stopping me these past few years. I'm opening a blog (private for now) as a bit of a training and I'm hoping to find here a motivating and inspiring community. :)
