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

Shopping weekend 2021 

We'll have a few sales on Write.as throughout the weekend! But I let this important national holiday slip my mind until today, so not all sales are live yet.

Right now, you can get:

- 25% off our yearly Pro subscription: write.as/start/pro
- 33% off the @writefreely iOS app: apps.apple.com/us/app/writefre

And there's plenty more to come. I'll post here and on our @deals blog when everything is available 🙂

We’ve moved to a new support ticket system for everyone on Write.as. If you need help with anything, just visit our Contact page to open a new ticket via email or our forum. Also, now you can see when we might be on vacation or otherwise taking a break, and get a better idea of when to expect a response from us.

I'm wondering if it makes sense to add a new customization option to @writefreely / @write_as: the ability for posts to live on a sub-path, instead of on the top-level of your site.

Would love to hear your feedback on the forum: discuss.write.as/t/feedback-wa

Considering making some changes to the @write_as Free plan:

- A limit on overall number of posts
- Closing new Free registrations for a few months, to personally give me some breathing room

Would love to hear your thoughts on the forum: discuss.write.as/t/potential-c

As is tradition, we're opening up the "Novel" blog format, and offering one additional blog to hold your novel, at no extra cost.

Okay, here we go!

You won't be able to publish or update posts for a little bit. If you try, you'll notice that the request hangs or freezes.

Watch this thread for when we're back!

We're going to have a small window of time tonight where you won't be able to publish or update any posts, as we make some important database changes.

It shouldn't take long, overall. But I'll let you know as soon as that starts!

We're introducing ourselves and our blogs over on the forum: discuss.write.as/t/introduce-y

Come stop by and let us know more about you!

We've just put in a permanent fix for SSL certificates on custom domains, which popped up over the weekend due to Let's Encrypt's root certificate expiring.
