Snap.as launched its first dedicated feature, photo albums, as a one-time paid add-on and made its first sale within 12 minutes.
We saw our first month of positive cash flow!
Telegram had just launched their "minimalist publishing tool," so I posted Write.as to Hacker News, and was featured the next day on Product Hunt!
After 8 months of building support for user accounts, blogs, cross-posting, and paid subscriptions, version 2.0 launched!
I needed a weekend project to take a break from the monotony of working on one project. So I built HTMLhouse, a place to publish HTML and see what you were building in real-time. It provided a bit of engineering-as-marketing for Write.as, and the normal hacker crowd I launched to enjoyed it.
We finally launched a way to publish, edit, and delete posts from the web.
In 2014 I couldn't find a space online where I was comfortable writing my thoughts. Social media tracked my every move, and most blogging platforms got in my way. So I built that freeing place and opened it to everyone.
