Pros: This answered almost all of the issues I had with other blogging platforms or CMSs on the market today. Most online software and services that claim to be writing software or blogging software are so bloated and bulky and require so much backend knowledge and work. Write.as is super simple. You log in and start writing. There's no server stuff or plug-ins or site settings to worry about. It's not for everyone, but it's not built for everyone. It's purpose-built for people who want to just sit down and write. Upgraded plans are affordable and feature-rich, our rep is super responsive in the community and for support questions. If you're looking for a simple way to write something and publish it to the web, either anonymously or to a personal website (yes, you can publish anonymous articles or set up a custom domain), this is the website for you. There's no hassle with a minimalist interface that is a breath of fresh air compared to the competition. It's simple and sleek, yet very customizable (with a pro upgrade).

Cons: It's a small team, so new features are slow to come, but our rep is a rockstar and is constantly releasing new related projects, fixing bugs, and adding new features while keeping the whole project simple and not adding extra bloat. Analytics could be a bit better for personal blogs. The workflow for draft posts was a little strange to get used to coming from a traditional CMS (Wordpress), but it makes sense after you spend some time with it.

Overall: I was looking for a simple, minimalist way to publish a simple blog. All I wanted to do was customize a few options (font, background color, headers, etc.) and then log in and write. Write.as provided a fresh experience when compared to bloated or overly technical CMSs and blogging platforms. There's no backend stuff to manage, no admin settings. Now instead of spending hours managing the admin side of my blog I spend a few minutes tweaking settings and checking analytics, and spend more time writing, editing, and publishing. Best simple writing and publishing platform on the internet right now.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the simplicity of its use and configuration. I value very positively that the privacy and the anonymity of the user are taken seriously.

The price to pay for the plus versions are very affordable and it is worth paying for them. The company is developing new tools to improve the user experience.

Cons: What I liked least at first was that you have to learn the Markdown language, but then you appreciate it because it makes writing a lot easier.

I am missing the possibility of seeing a previous version of your publication before publishing it.

Overall: The general experience using write.as is very positive. It has the features I seek, which are: simplicity, privacy, anonymity and strength.

The technical support is very attentive and fast. The company behind this platform is continually developing improvements, always keeping the essence of write.as

Pros: Write.as makes it one-click simple to get your thoughts out into the world. the connection between who you really are and what you write is as tenuous or as firm as you want it to be; meaning you can publish effectively anonymously, or entirely eponymously.

Cons: write.as goes for minimalism and obtains that goal, but it may be that it's a little too minimalist. However, this is simply a difference of style, not a real indictment of the product. Write.as remains one of the most useful writing tools in my workflow.

Pros: Minimalist and distraction-free approach to writing, on an accessible platform. The writing takes centre-stage, and there's a focus on little else, unlike most of the available blogging platforms out there nowadays.

Cons: The lack of an ability to engage with readers. A comment system is in the works, but has yet to see the light of day.

Overall: Was seeking a place to post stories and articles that wouldn't fit my main blog. Write.as functions perfectly as an alternative that's easy to get off the ground and manage.

Pros: I love the simplicity of Write.as. It truly is "distraction-free" writing that puts a focus on the words instead of multimedia, advertising, etc.

Cons: Though smart users will figure out how to do certain things, it would be nice to have some basic formatting abilities (bold, italic, etc.) available from the writing module (if desired by user).
