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 platform is just the start.

Now you can along with each of them right here in the fediverse:

@readwriteas - stories from Write.as
@snap_as - photo and album hosting
@htmlhouse - HTML hosting

Future:
@draft_as - collaboration on text
@jot_as - private, encrypted notes

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.

I'm starting a small #WriteFreely :writefreely: community. For now it's invite only. Read my announcement post and if this sounds like something you'd like to participate in let me know!

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 instances. There are already some great ones to pick from!

Do you run a single-user #WriteFreely instance? Have you noticed any small issues / quirks? I started noticing a few, and am fixing them now. Would love to hear from you if I'm missing anything.

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: 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 instances get started.

We like to talk about how lightweight 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:
