Wordly has a Wikipedia page now. Have mercy on it.


Had fun yesterday..

March 11, 2007

And – after the meeting – ended up playing extra, with some of my fellow party members, in a small theater (with an audience of perhaps 50 people).

Then, today, I woke up bored with Wordly and sketched some at instead. Here’s a screenshot of the result (for archiving).

PS. After gazing at all of range’s nice temple photos I just felt for something religious. Thus, Brahma (the creator). Though I’m not really Hindu. But Christian. It’s a remix of an old jaspoid one “Supernatural” from last year.

And Wordly looks nothing (nothing!) like Google! At all! True story.. screenshot

Tomorrow I won’t be designing away on Wordly, anyway, because tomorrow I’ll dedicate solely to my party: the Green Party of Sweden. Local year meeting. Will be fun!

See you!

PS. Did you know that “wordly” is slang for “awesome, excellent, or otherwise worthy of satisfaction or praise. Generally used in response to a pleasing situation or proposition, or to describe something that ‘kicks ass'”? I didn’t. But it sounds great to me! Cool. Ciao!

Ok, ok!

No bullshitting this time. Wordly is:

  1. Inexpensive. At $16 a year, including 1 (.com/net/org) domain and 2 gigabytes of storage, we’re confident we offer the world’s best priced personal blog service.
  2. Fast. All pages on Wordly – including blog pages – will be smaller than 10 kilobytes, including CSS. In just 1 request (at less than 10 KB), with no external stylesheets or javascript, we’ve made sure every page will load fast and smooth.
  3. Simple. Talking of the devil. While WordPress is one techy piece, we’re just ordinary people who love storytelling. We’re simply not interested in drowning our users in new, nifty features. Wordly will always just be for writing, sharing, and enjoying media together.
  4. For everyone. If there’s one thing we strongly believe in, it’s enabling everyone access to web content. Thus, every single page on Wordly will be validating XHTML 1.0 Strict, while trying our best to meet W3C’s web content accessibility guidelines.

End of story!

PS. Oops. This wasn’t exactly “how Wordly deviates from other blog services”, was it? Well, you get the basic picture now, at least, and you’ll get to see for yourself in time. Till then – take care!

First things first

I love this foot!

Between the toes

But also. I told you yesterday I’ll tell how Wordly deviates from other blog services. I’ll do that. After breakfast!

An introduction..

March 8, 2007

First, let me stress how much I respect and Vox by the Automattic team and Six Apart. They are great. They make true web magic.

However – to me – there’s still plenty of room for a more diverse spectrum of services, and gaps (between man, media, and machine) to bridge. Crafting new services in the spirit of not just being better, but different. With plenty of room to improve

  1. usability,
  2. accessibility,
  3. standards-compliance,
  4. loading speeds,
  5. and lower costs

for different user groups. And that’s why I founded – a fresh player on the hosted log field.

So now. What is Wordly, really? And how is it different from all the other services? Well. That I’ll tell you. After I’ve had some dinner..

Update: I’m sorry, but I’m really tired, so I don’t think I can express myself clearly enough now. Tomorrow, hopefully, precious reader. Good night. Take care.
