Very happy to have made the leap to a @write_as pro plan.
Today I needed help with a problem with the username and the url of the @snap_as service and they solved it very quickly.
It's time to move the rest of the content from Blogger / Wordpress and customize blogs
Thanks @matt

I was getting increasingly doubtful of Medium as a blogging service for my devlog, so I'm happy to have migrated over to @write_as

It's looking pretty clean!

You can even technically follow the blog on the fediverse, although I'm not entirely sure of the use at this stage.

Just launched Write.as Labs, a section of the platform for experimental new features, available to all Pro users. We'll be using this corner of the platform to try out different ideas, gather feedback, make improvements, and then bring the feature into the core product (including ), if it makes sense.

Our first feature is an alternative web-based editor with a more traditional UI for publishing to Write.as -- the Classic Editor.

Try it out now on Labs: write.as/labs

Rediscovered this talk today, and just realized how much it ended up influencing me and what I've been doing over the past several years.

Updated our instances page to show a bit more information, like how many blogs are allowed.

With the next WF release, we'll also be able to see if your instance has a public reader enabled, and if so, will display a direct link to it on this page.
