Need help installing #WriteFreely? You can jump over to our forums to ask for help or see if anyone else has encountered the same problems.
Discussing the project in a public place like this helps our small team (@matt) save time answering common questions, and makes it so more people can benefit from / join our conversations.
And if you want to support the project, please feel free to help others in the community. Any help you can offer is welcome and appreciated!
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:

I want to make a positive announcement. Since July I have been working as a contractor on the @write_as desktop app! It’s a small contract with a budding company, so it doesn’t pay rent yet, but it’s income.
Any contributions or pointers while I’m looking for more work would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to speaking at ActivityPub Conf 2019!
It's also a great time to grab a free account! Accounts created on August 1 or later (eastern US time) will have a limit on the number of posts they can create for free.
Besides helping us reach sustainability sooner, with these changes we want to encourage people to spread out across other #WriteFreely instances. There are already some great ones to pick from!
Just a few hours left to grab our Casual plan for $12 / year!

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.
