In the hopes of writing more, then, I’m aiming to move everything over to a hosted blogging platform, consolidating both long-form articles and quick notes into a single place:

Hosted on @write_as, natch.

After years of running a Hugo-powered blog and having built a custom theme for it, I’m (finally) coming to the realization that the more work I have to do to publish a though, the less likely I am to do it.

Kinda obvious in retrospect, I guess. boosted

A nice feeling - Upgrade Blog Instance version

And success. Thank you to @matt and the @write_as team - all went perfectly.

Windows 10 install, one year anniversary now. And I sweated it out fearing a database crash, never happened.

* copied over config.ini
* copied over keys folder files.

And voilá -- WF is up.

thanks to the magic of @write_as my current :nanowrimo: #NaNoWriMo project is now available as a rough and ready e-book, if you like reading on e-ink readers or dedicated reader software instead of on the web.

And honestly, who could blame you?

Anyway, free epub downloads here: boosted

Hey, #WriteFreely #writeas users! 👋 Quite a lot of you here, almost 300 nodes. Can you please explain your use cases of the software? Why is it better than posting thoughts in any long-format Fediverse network? AFAIK, WriteFreely has no notifications in web interface. It doesn't show followers (except the count). It shows no comments under posts inside the interface. Do authors answer to comments from other apps? Don't you miss comments from your readers? Or is it supposed to be a one-way train? boosted boosted

It's ! Like every year, that means everyone can use the "Novel" blog format all month long on, even as a Free user, and get one additional blog for your novel at no extra cost.

We're finally leaving the "alpha" development stage! As part of this, we'll need to move everyone to our new infrastructure.

Yesterday, v1.0 of the WriteFreely app for iOS launched on the App Store — I wrote a bit about my experience building it in #SwiftUI here, as well as what's next: boosted

Of course, the iOS app also works with our hosted service, So if you've been waiting to log in to your account on iOS, now you can at last!

Here's how to do that:

(We unfortunately don't have a way to migrate anonymous posts from our v1.0 iOS app today, but we hope to in the future!)
