We’ve simplified the site
Due to ongoing hacking problems we’ve had to remove realtime interactivity. To upload your story or comment, simply email it via the link provided. The site moderator will then upload it. Photographs can be sent in the same way. Alternatively, photos can be sent to the Anashstory WhatsApp group.
Anashstory on Facebook
If you find Facebook more convenient, upload your stories, comments and photos to the Anashstory Facebook page. This is a closed user group, so you will have to verify your profile by ‘applying’ to become a group member. Your stories will then be reposted to this site.
