New Drablr Blog

drablr-logoDrablr now has a new home for its blog and update news. A few days back I updated the old Drablr news site from a custom solution to using WordPress. Not only does this make it easier for me to maintain and keep up-to-date, but it also provides better features for you.

Being a wordpress site means it’s now possible to leave comments on all posts — although I usually post content from here on sites like Facebook and Google+, having a central place for people to comment on them should be better. Continue reading New Drablr Blog

Drablr Beta Goes Live!

I’m pleased to announce that the Drablr platform is now live! Currently this is only a Beta release so only invited authors can post Drabbles.

Drablr.com is a service for authors who like to be challenged by the confines of 100 words, it’s a place to experiment, to discover if an idea has potential, and another tool to help connect with readers.

Anyone can sign up to be a reader (follow authors, vote and comment), but while the site is still in Beta you must be invited before you can start posting.

Even if you don’t wish to post, please do come over; there’s some great stories being told.

Registration is here.
