Do you remember your first #introduction to Mastodon?

It was great wasn't it? You found your group of misfits

Mastodon is home to creative artists, writers, and poets like you.

But, being the new kid in town, there aren't a lot of the tools that creative people depend on.

Right now, there is no easy way to schedule statuses ahead of time.

When you finish up something at two in the morning, wouldn't it be nice if someone else was awake to see it?

Since no one has built anything to help creators keep in touch with their biggest supporters, I'm going to take a shot at it.

If you've ever typed #creativetoot into a status box, drop me your email and I'll let you know when Postdate is ready.

Frequently asked questions

What exactly are you making?
A service for scheduling toots on Mastodon. I want to make it easy to plan posts ahead of time that take advantage of Mastodon's unique culture. Content warnings, image descriptions, and sensitive content will be supported.
And who are you?
My name's Erik. I like tinkering with stuff on the web, doing a bit of drawing, and running around in the cold.
What's next?
I'm working on getting a stable alpha that I can get in people's hands to play with.
Which platforms do you support?
Postdate will be a desktop web app at first. I'd love to build out apps for iOS and Android eventually.
This sounds really cool. Is there anything I can do to help you out right now?
You're swell. Subscribe to the email, follow me on Mastodon, and keep creating that awesome stuff that makes Mastodon the wonderful weirdness that it is.
