@hebel Do you know if something like SOFORT (sofort.com/) or Giropay (giropay.de/kaeufer/) would work for you? It looks like they'd let us accept wire transfers.

If so, I'd be happy to add that so you can upgrade.

@hebel Cash works as well -- here's more information on that: write.as/help#payment-options

@hebel Credit cards, PayPal, and cryptocurrencies -- the last is just manual / by request. Would one of those work?

Would you like to see support for MathJax or other text-formatting syntaxes? I'd love to hear about it.


Blogs are now localized in ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ Simplified Chinese!

We just fixed an issue where text was hidden under the top bar in the iOS app. #๐Ÿ›

Recently I did an interview about starting Write.as, building the MVP, and finding writers that would appreciate the app early on: veed.io/takethebait/writeas

@trappleton Hey, glad you're liking it! Yep, publishing an Anonymous / un-publicized post is effectively the same thing.

Alternatively, you could also create a Private blog as a way to keep drafts organized -- something I myself and other user have done (though that's a Pro feature).

Well, I used WordPress extensively in the past. I lke it. It's a good platform. It has a lot of features, ones which I never used.

Having more features doesn't necessarily make something 'better'. I chose to use @write_as because 1) I was curious about it, 2) I like its minimalism, and 3) it does what I need it to do.

That doesn't mean it's for everyone or every situation, it's the right choice for what I want to do. For me, Write.as is 'better'.


@dogtrax I like that idea! There's nothing built at the moment, but it's definitely possible between the Atom feeds on Mastodon and our API: developers.write.as/docs/api/#

You might be able to use something like Zapier or IFTTT to connect to two today without code. Otherwise I'll ask around and see if anyone is interested on hacking together a tool for that

Here's a little tutorial on creating badges with your blog stats, using our API and shields.io

Here it is! The official Snap.as browser extension. Just open it, drag a photo in, and the Markdown will be copied to your clipboard. Paste that in any Markdown-enabled editor (like @write_as) and there's your picture!

Get it for Chrome:

We've heard a growing number of people would like on their blog โ€” so we're planning to build a simple, optional commenting system that respects and lets you take your data where you want.

Let us know what you'd like to see in it!
