I’m Kristi, a UI and brand designer based in Tirana, member of Collective68, a Tirana based open source consultancy company. This is my first time here.
I am highly interested in [free] open source software and are contributors in some FLOSS communities. I’ve been in touch with Write.as since two months ago, and as far as I’m experimenting with it, I like it’s blog host. In my opinion Write.as is quite a solid open source alternative to Medium. I love the clean theme, minimalistic text and the possibility of writing anonymously with no log-in (something like telegra.ph).
In the begging, it was so confusing the markdown writing and howto.write.as was not easily findable. Luckily, I’m geeky enough to understand this kind of syntax, but it ain’t easy to describe it to my friends. I look strange to them.
Anyway, I’m really into Write.as, and I’m suggesting it to any writer I know. Also, we are offering Write.as ( as PaaS) for everyone who is looking for an independent blogging platform. For more, you can read an article I recently wrote about the importance of self-hosting and open source blogging platforms.
Looking forward to your comments and feedback,
