We're working to build a suite of tiny, focused tools that all work together, and share the same simplicity and privacy-awareness of Write.as. This little #blogging platform is just the start.
Now you can #follow along with each of them right here in the fediverse:
Can anyone rec me some Plume/Write.as/"Article"-federating blogs, about activism, social justice, gender stuff, neurodiversity, media reviews, community managing, DIY stuff or anything else I might be interested in?
My current Plume feed is only people from my own instance and the other accounts there don't follow people outside the instance either lol

Now you can (finally) include an email subscription box on any Write.as post! (Including a static page, like this one: https://write.as/matt/subscribe)

We're going to phase out our Casual plan for new users next month, as we move towards a focus on our apps and helping more #WriteFreely instances get started.
We like to talk about how lightweight #WriteFreely is by saying it's "light enough to run on a Raspberry Pi." But to actually do that, you'd need to go through the work of compiling everything yourself.
Well, not anymore. Now we'll be releasing ARMv7 builds that can run on a Raspberry Pi, starting with WriteFreely v0.10.
Download that build here:
Detailed Fixes: https://github.com/writeas/writefreely/releases/tag/v0.10.0
* Fully Private Instances
* Landing Page Customization
Upgrade with the following command:
$ yunohost app upgrade writefreely -u https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/writefreely_ynh
GOSH I love reading full articles from @write_as in the new single-column view.
The attached screenshot is after clicking through a "read article" link, one of the features of my new Mastodon fork, Hometown. I hope to have documentation and release notes ready to go by the end of the week!

Some differences between #Diffu and #Plume / #WriteFreely
Coming in #WriteFreely v0.10: more control over your home page! As the admin of a multi-user instance, you'll be able to:
* Change the content of the home page (as seen here: https://pencil.writefree.ly)
* Change the default page that non-users land on (e.g. instead of the home page, it could be your About page, or a specific blog)
Today a user encountered our automated spam filter on Write.as and alleged that we were providing shelter to hate groups. That couldn't be farther from the truth -- enough said.
Still, we've written more about this and how our spam filters work over on the forum: https://discuss.write.as/t/how-spam-filters-work/696
