So happy to see all those amazing posts on the Scribbles Explore page — some are so very personal and open! Thank you all that write on Scribbles. It gives me hope that there are really great people and content out there.

"Well, it's been a little while since I wrote an update here. The truth is, is that it's been moving pretty fast!"

Updates and a changelog on the Scribbles Blog

"There is now a new blog settings screen called "crossposting" that shows you all of your available feeds, which you can copy and add to, EchoFeed or any other services that digests RSS feeds and then cross posts them."

Crossposting on the Scribbles Update Blog

Shipped last week, you now have the ability to create categories to your posts with a super simple and slick interface to get started. Categories allows you to add one category per post so that you separate out your content into... well... categories of course.

Introducing Categories on the Scribbles Update Blog

Happy to announce that Scribbles is now open for registration 🥳 Blog post announcing it properly as the week progresses.

Really couldn't be here without all the early adopters! Thank you so very much for all your feedback ✌️❤️

Just a quick PSA for all Scribbles early adopters, this is the last week when you're able to grab the Lifetime plan. You'll always have access to the early adopter yearly plan of $30. I might send out an email to everyone that hasn't yet subscribed — totally get that it isn't for everyone too.

Was great fun working on the initial categories feature for Scribbles over the past few days. That's now live. More to do of course, but super duper happy with this initial release. Also had some fun by doing some small "live" updates ✌️❤️

Coffee has been had. Now you have a Reply by Email option in Scribbles. Enter an email you're comfortable sharing and a link will appear at the bottom of each post, with a subject pre-filled.

Will flesh this out more as time goes. You can also find an override for the text that appears ✌️

One mini feature heading to Scribbles either tonight with my evening beer, or tomorrow morning with my coffee 🤓👨‍💻

Small itch I wanted to scratch for Scribbles... and live now, with a post coming later today or tomorrow... you can export any of your published posts straight to HTML or Markdown. Just go to your post and you'll see a new "archive" button in the header. Basic for now with nice filenames.

"Yesterday, after a request from Jason, I added support for Letterbird, a super nice service for embedding a contact form."

To be fair to the early adopters of Scribbles, come April 1st (2024) I will be adding the new pricing — if you have registered before that date, you can still grab the Lifetime and also the special yearly. I'll have new monthly and yearly plans for new signups after the 1st ✌️❤️

"You see, my plan was to launch Scribbles on April 1st for anyone to register and get blogging — and you know, it's probably ready for it too.
I've been happy with onboarding everyone manually over the past few months, with great conversation happening at a personal level, and that got me thinking."

Thoughts on invite only on the Scribbles blog.

Feedback is very welcome. You know my email ✌️❤️

I did add some extra Nitpick settings to Scribbles last night — I'll write about them later this week. Plus I have one feature I am still working on, but it's there already — just needs some polish. You'll know what it is when you spot the setting 😋

"Late last week, thanks to Sticker Spotter, I worked on general improvements on handling posts with just images.
Next up I finally enabled a hidden option that allows you to show an image preview on your post list..."
