So, in the beginning, or probably more appropriately, "In a galaxy far far away..." Decentralize Today started up 6-7 years ago as a blog on Medium. And when there we were reasonably 'successful', and had a nice number of writers and several thousand followers and readers.
However, there was always the feeling that we could 'do more', that we could and should deliver a resource that supported, promoted and actually 'lived' the decentralized life we talked so much about. It has never been about the numbers, we just wanted to communicate, share, educate and to do that with professionalism and pride.
So we sharpened our scope, transferred the blog to its own secured site (along with the alternate, ultra-secure, super short TOR enabled dt.gl URL), 'rebranded' as decentralize.today, adopted the Ghost blogging software in order to be more privacy-friendly and committed to deliver to our promise of being 'Your Daily Dose of Decentralization' by posting at least one quality article each and every day.
Don't worry, we're not using this article to announce that we are about to shut down the site, far from it...in fact we are taking actions to expand our reach and make your participation even easier! At decentralize.today, decentralizing is in our DNA, so we move on and continue that process.
To kick-off, Write.as and Submit.as are partnering with decentralize.today to give writers and contributors an easy way to send in articles and connect to the Fediverse!
Or as Write.as famously puts it:
"Less distraction, more writing"
Free your thoughts
We don't track you, so you can write exactly what you feel. Write anonymously or under different identities, giving you full control over who knows what about you. Write.as is used by writers, students, and everyday people who need a safe outlet online.
With Submit.as you can use your Fediverse/Write.as or WriteFreely username and have the article directly linked into your profile. Alternatively, you can submit articles anonymously and then we take care of the rest.
"Clear the clutter and focus on your writing"
