Another Medium alternative on the Fediverse is Plume, which is also a federated long form text platform.
Plume's status is slightly unclear as the official website has a message on the front page saying the project is not currently maintained: https://joinplu.me
Can anyone give an update on what's going on there?
You can connect existing WordPress blogs to the Fediverse by using this plugin:
It lets people on Mastodon etc follow your blog, comment, like and share its posts.
You can also find it in the plugins section of your WordPress blog, search for "ActivityPub" (all one word).
@email@example.com The way that reads, they're encouraging people to use other software instead. Unless someone adopts it, it's probably done.
@feditips Hello, former Plume maintainer here
For a few months I stopped working on the project. Seeing I would not go back to it, I prefered to transfer it to someone else, and one of the contributors offered to handle the maintenance. They don't have much free time to give to Plume however, so the project is still alive but at a very slow pace, that's why it is now recommended to use alternatives such as WriteFreely.
Thanks for the update 🙏 I hope we get to see Plume development continue, it has so much potential!
