Typed.com is the latest upcoming blogging platform that makes it easier for writers, storytellers, and journalists to publish their work online.
It is currently an IndieGogo campaign launched by Realmac Software, makers of Realweaver, Ember, and award-winning to-do app Clear. But with a couple of days left before the end of the campaign, Typed.com has amassed over $115,000USD, more than 500% than their target goal.
Why the need for Typed.com?
If the amount of donations made for Typed.com indicates anything, the need for a new and different blogging platform is at an all-time high.
Blogging was a simple and straightforward platform for people to share their writing to the world. All they need to do is sign up for an account and write their posts before publishing. It’s that easy.
Nowadays, blogging platforms have evolved into content management systems (CMS). These platforms accommodate features that may have nothing to do with blogging. While not necessarily a bad thing, it makes it more unnecessarily complicated for non-developers to create and post on their blogs.
This is the very reason why Typed.com was conceived.
Aimed to provide a “beautiful writing experience,” Typed.com keeps things simple but cutting down the features to its bare essentials. This way, bloggers can focus on what they do best – blogging. No need to download different plugins and add-ons or purchase a web hosting service.
Realmac is a 12-year old small team in Brighton, England that develops apps dedicated for building websites. Through their experience, the team is dedicated in making Typed.com a world-class online writing and publishing platform in the world.
Typed.com has the basic features that you’ve expect from a great blogging platform. But what makes it special compared to others is its user interface.
If you have used apps developed by Realmac, you can expect the same seamless user experience that is seen from their previous works.
Adding an image is simple as dragging and dropping the file on the browser. No need to open a new window to select the image to be added.
All content in your blog is and will be hosted by Typed.com. You won’t have to worry about getting your content pulled down from your blog. As long as you remain a paying customer, Typed.com will keep your content online. All blog content is hosted using cloud application Heroku. This also allowed Realmac to focus on creating an awesome blogging platform in Typed.com instead of dividing their attention on hosting.
If you want to add pages to your blog instead of posts, Typed.com lets you do that with just a few clicks of a button.
As mentioned, the IndieGogo campaign is still ongoing. Even if the campaign has exceeded its goal, you can still donate to enjoy exclusive perks such as discounted prices, membership option, and more!
Here’s a development time of Typed.com for those interested.
