dotart.blog

Welcome!

Find a list of public blogs on dotart.blog here

dotart.blog is a sister site to mastodon.art owned and managed by Curator/WelshPixie. It is intended as an extension to the mastodon.art community for those members who wish to post longer works of writing, whether that's poetry, stories, or blogs about things like worldbuilding or the creative process.

This instance runs WriteFreely, and not Mastodon – whereas Mastodon is a microblogging platform, WriteFreely is more like WordPress in that it's for longer form writing; poetry, stories, blog posts, etc. will all be very welcome here.

WriteFreely uses markdown for formatting, can support images, you can skin your blog with CSS, and it has cool features like draft posts, scheduled posts, pinned posts that show up as navigation links at the top of your blog (like an About page), excerpts, and RSS feeds (see the full list here ).
