We have some server maintenance scheduled for Monday, Jan. 20 at 01:00 UTC (Jan. 19, 8:00pm EST) that may cause some downtime for Write.as blogs hosted on a custom domain or *.writeas.com subdomain.
This shouldn't last for more than an hour overall, and won't affect the core application. We'll post again when everything is back online!
@matt took some time to talk about the origins behind @write_as , where it's headed, and what he's learned along the way in building usable software for creative expression. Thanks to everyone for backing our mission and making the project more than we could've imagined!
