Want your blog / instance featured?

I’m hoping to show off some WriteFreely instances / Write.as blogs on writefreely.org, to illustrate the different ways the software can be / is being used. I’d especially like to feature sites that have any kind of customized design, as I’d like to include some screenshots.

If you’re running a blog or instance (single- or multi-user), plan to continue running it for a while, and want it featured, let me know!


Happy to do that.

Wait, you can customize the design? I’m going to go do that, then I’ll send you my permanent writefreely instance link. ^~^

Right now you can customize individual blogs, yep. (In a future release, you’ll also be able to set a different base style for the entire instance.) But that would be great!

I operate https://wordsmith.social/ and certainly plan to continue running it for a while :slight_smile:


Check out my single-user blog that I plan to run for as long as I can, which features a nice customized design, hope you like it.


My blog on Write.as with a custom CSS and some JS: https://aris.papatheodorou.net


Thanks, everyone! These are great. I just put up the page featuring your sites: Created with WriteFreely.

For anyone else who wants to be featured, please feel free to keep replying here.

Feel free to feature mine if you’d like. Just a few little customizations, but working on customizing it a bit more in the future: quiethabits.net

Thanks, it looks great! Added to the page now :+1:

No customizations, but feel free to highlight what a non-technical person can do. Grin.

Been playing around with the format of my blog. Custom footer, back to top, logo and pinned topics with custom google fonts. I’ve also meddled with the link behavior including bolding the text, removing underlines and changing colour on hover. Have also added CSS for centralising and responsive video embeds, and centralised images. (Thanks to all who have helped me with various elements of this!)



Bumping this topic because we want to feature new Write.as / WriteFreely blogs on the site! Again, since we’ll be including screenshots, blogs with customized design are a plus. Thanks everyone!

Not really customized as I’m not a tech guy but I’m learning on the way and I intend to continue running it for a long time. So feel free to show (or not, I’m not going to be offended!):

@DeaconPatrick I’m glad I’ve read this thread. Bookmarking your 3 blogs right now!

Hi @matt!
I have some light customization in my blog here: https://blog.melyanna.net/

  • “highlighting” effect with CSS
  • custom background texture
  • use system fonts

Definitely planning to use this long term to post some art, notes on books I am reading, and random thoughts.


Would love to :slight_smile: https://hjarta.io is slightly customized (header, footer, analytics), and has some extras (including @cjeller1592’s highlighting/annotation hack for https://hypothes.is/).


Very, very nice, mikka! I’m impressed with all the customizations you included. I also like your use of page width. And little things like the yellow background, bordered tag links. And it looks beautiful. Congrats!

@mikka mind sharing how you customized analytics?

It looks like @mikka is using Google Analytics and putting it into his blog via the Custom JavaScript. Below is what he is putting into it. The tracking ID (UA-000000-2) is unique to your GA account.

var gtagJs = document.createElement("script");
gtagJs.src = 'https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-000000-2';
gtagJs.async = true;
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
gtag('js', new Date());
gtag('config', 'UA-000000-2');
