Our vision for Typed was for it to be a simple, reliable, and focused blogging platform, something that would be around for a long, long time to come. We wanted it to buck the trend of all the services that are seemingly free (but sell your private data).
Typed.com had so much potential, yet unfortunately, it turns out it's very hard to compete against a sea of free options; Wordpress, Medium, Tumblr, Ghost, to name just a few.
For over a year now, Typed.com has been running at a loss and has been funded by our other products. We've tried hard to make Typed.com viable, it’s a great platform and we still believe in it, but we can’t continue to invest money into it.
It’s been a tough decision, but at the end of the day, it comes down to cost. No app or service can be run indefinitely at a loss. We plan to keep typed.com online for as long as possible, but to keep the running cost down we'll not be making any additions or improvements.
You can export your content from the Settings area, under General in your site dashboard. Once you've exported your data you can cancel your account via the dashboard also.
We appreciate the support Typed received at launch, and we're truly sorry it didn't work out the way we'd all hoped or that we have better news for you.
