What's your favorite way of publicly sharing a long post that would take dozens of toots to write on mastodon?

@switchingsocial maybe?

@hippolyte write.as blogs federate directly to mastodon. i've seen people use their blogs as a method of sharing posts longer than a couple of toots could handle and then post the link/boost the blog's mastodon profile

@eightbitsamurai @hippolyte
Write.as is nice, but it seems that only write.as has the option to post anonymously. Free-as-in-freedom WriteFreely instances (writefreely.org/instances) only allow you to make a draft without publishing unless you register.
@write_as

@hippolyte @switchingsocial I usually write the long post on my blog and link to it.

@KelsonV @hippolyte @switchingsocial yeah, I’d write a post on Dreamwidth or my website and link to it.

@hippolyte @switchingsocial If you don't want to register a blog, but just share a large post, here is a comparison of anonymous (as in, no registration required) services: howto.writefree.ly/

@hippolyte

Diaspora*, because of formatting options.
I have played with pleroma and longer character limit mastodon too, but they feel less satisfactory.

@switchingsocial

Agree ... Diaspora*

@hippolyte ... or, like me, get an account on qoto.org ... the character limit on there is like 65.000 ...

@iLikeAltitude oh wow, but I guess people on mastodon don't want their feed to be flooded with superlong posts. This being said, you can always put cw on your long posts.

I tried Diaspora* before discovering mastodon, but there were a few things I disliked. First, chronological order with long posts is annoying, you're flooded with stuff you don't care about, and also I didn't like the community I managed to get into on this software, but that may just be bad luck.

@hippolyte
Many Pleroma instances allow posts of up to several thousand characters.
