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

Do you publish several posts a day on Write.as, especially on a free account or without an account at all? I'd love to hear what you think of some potential upcoming changes.

Great article about starting up an independent blog in 2019. In it, I also talk a bit about how Write.as is trying to make blogging a little more social, and how our business model keeps you free from ads and personal data collection.

Write.as : c’est comme ça

Mon nouveau blog est hébergé par Write.as. L’occasion pour moi de dire quelques mots de ce service de publication sur le Web atypique au concept plutôt original qui combine minimalisme éditorial, respect de l’anonymat (et même droit aux identités multiples), développement open source, et intégration à la fédiverse.

Also re: , I'm still looking for feedback on what everyone would like to see in v1.0.

Is it more moderation tools? Customization? Additional features? Let me know here or (preferably) on the forums: discuss.write.as/t/crucial-fea

The introductory price for our managed WriteFreely hosting expires December 31st! Sign up before then to get 50% off this service for life.

Woo, the native @writeas__@twitter.com app is now available on @elementary@twitter.com AppCenter! Writing something up about it today… 😉appcenter.elementary.io/com.gi

No #WriteFreely release tomorrow / this week, as we didn't make any major changes last week.

But if you run your own instance, I need your feedback for what we should include in v1.0: discuss.write.as/t/crucial-fea

Just updated our @readwriteas community guidelines to be a little more explicit about things we've seen (like content marketing and Bitcoin scams): read.write.as/community

With this, we've also added general guidelines for the entire Write.as platform: write.as/guidelines

TL;DR: since Read Write.as is a public, promoted channel for writing, we're a little more restrictive there, content-wise, than on the general platform.

Just released v1.0.1 of our :linux: app

This bugfix release gets rid of an error message that popped up the first time everyone launched the app, and fixes parts of the UI that broke in v3.20+
