Just fixed a bug that popped up when toggling the editor theme, caused by Chrome extensions like Google Voice.
We also learned that Grammarly really messes up the editor. While we wait for them to (hopefully) fix it, here's how to disable the extension while you're on Write.as. https://support.grammarly.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000091612-Disable-Grammarly-extension-on-one-or-more-websites

A little peek at what Snap.as pricing will look like: https://we.snap.as/pricing-plans
Good news! A yearly Pro subscription is now only $40.
If you're already an annual Pro subscriber, get the new pricing by switching to the monthly plan and then back again, as shown here. https://write.as/me/plan https://writing.exchange/media/ct2vEGFhnc2UZ_APnAU

Version 2.0 of the Android app: coming by the end of March, for real this time.
Some pricing changes coming next week — specifically, the price for an annual Pro subscription is dropping to $40
Slight improvement to post titles and slugs tonight: no more image URLs showing up in slugs, and we now fall back to a photo's alt text if necessary.

Certain elements of blogs are now localized in Japanese! #changelog
I did this a little while ago, and even when I stopped promoting it letters still came in. So between that and having some time again, I invite anyone interested to request some free stickers!
Just send a self-addressed, stamped envelope over to Florida and I'll send a couple Write.as stickers back!
Thanks to everyone who's helped translate the app so far, certain blog elements are now localized in Hungarian, Romanian, Spanish, French, and Italian! Thank you all! https://write.as/thanks

At the present moment it's clear that only a tiny bit more effort will get us support for cross-posting to any Mastodon instance (not just Writing Exchange).
So cross-posting will be delayed another day or so, but when you see it you'll be able to post to any instance 🤘
