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'm migrating from Medium to @write_as : you can find it here!
write.as/nicolas-constant/

You can also follow it directly via it's ActivityPub profile: @nicolas-constant

I will blog about #Sengi on it, but also write down other thoughts and ideas I might put some efforts on. :)

Some kernel developers now have their blogs hosted on people.kernel.org, which is a WriteFreely instance with ActivityPub syndication. For example, try out @gregkh.

C’est quoi, l’interopérabilité, et pourquoi est-ce beau et bien ?

Want to run a blog on the Fediverse, which people can follow from Mastodon etc?

There are several platforms which let you do this:

Write Freely

joinplu.me/

ActivityPub plugin for Wordpress
wordpress.org/plugins/activity
@pfefferle

Pterotype plugin for Wordpress

Hey do y'all happen to know of anyone running #WriteFreely on a #Guix system? I'd like to, but without having to figure it out myself, if possible. #WriteAs

As you might've noticed, work on the @write_as CLI is moving forward again 🙂

v2.0 will support publishing to your Write.as account, then soon after that we'll support any #WriteFreely instance.

When Medium dropped our access to their API without warning a few months ago, we decided to permanently end our integration with them.

Today we're happy to launch a new integration with an open publishing platform that can't do the same, Ghost.

After a few years of running a Mastodon instance (writing.exchange) or two (m.abunchtell.com) and bringing our own platform into the fediverse with ActivityPub support, earlier this month Write.as became a Mastodon sponsor.

As always, I'm excited to keep supporting the fediverse :fediverse: and watching it grow!
