The Friends & Members of 750 Words

750 Words exists because of mutual good will between the people that run this site (Buster & Kellianne) and the people who use it (you). The site wouldn't exist without the generosity, patience, and humor of everyone involved. For the first 3+ years that the site was running (Dec 2009 to May 2013), the site was free to use but with some encouragement to donate. That served us well (and most importantly, generated enough income to keep the site up), but as the site grew the need for support also grew.

On June 12th 2013, all existing users of the site were given lifetime free accounts (we hope you'll continue to donate when you can). New accounts created after June 12th, 2013 are now required to become members within 30 days after signing up in order to keep writing. Everyone will always have access to previous writings, stats, etc, even if they choose not to become members.

We're listening to your feedback and want to make sure that first and foremost, we offer a friendly and safe place for people to dump their private thoughts. I expect that we'll continue to adjust the way this all works for the near term. Thanks for being an awesome community!

Who runs this site?

Our names are Buster and Kellianne, we live in Berkeley, California with our son Niko, and this is something we've built and run in our spare time.

I like to write and often other thoughts get in the way of what I want to get done. 750 words is my little away to let all the random thoughts out.

As I write almost all my morning pages in Spanish, analyzing by (my) language could be really great. I don’t really need the analysis as I’m happy with the simple act of writing and the word count but I wonder what the eternity page would say about my writings… anyway I really enjoy the exercise!!

Thanks for this great place to write, and for the opportunity to help kids learn to write.

Celebrating my 750 words anniversary this month.

Thanks for the great site Buster!

My writing has been more or less constipated for many months. And I just learned about Morning Pages from Pam Slim’s book Escape from Cubicle Nation. Even though I’ve been using 750words.com for less than a week, I can tell already that I’m getting un-stuck. THANK YOU for helping me help myself out of this bout of writer’s block and rebuilding my writing momentum.

I just can’t thank 750 Words enough for making writing my morning pages so fun and easy! Completing the July challenge gave me a nice sense of accomplishment, but more than anything it gave me a lot of insight into the wacky inner workings of my mind.

Thank you, Buster!

This site is a relief. RELIEF. I’ve tried other sites, I’ve tried paper and pen, but this site is the only one that has me writing again. I can not begin to tell you how nice that is. Thank you.

Compatibility with Hotel Internet Browsers

I have had to use various motel computers to access 750words.com. The proprietary browser they use is not very compatible with this site. It is very frustrating to type 750 words then discover that the site didn’t save it. Also, these browsers won’t display the word count. In order to find out how many words I’ve typed, I have to sign out and sign back in.

I love 750words.com! I’ve tried to journal many times in the past but this site has helped me to actually do it consistently (for 517 days and counting). One of the benefits: I’ve journaled my way through layers of excuses until I’ve made much needed changes to improve my health (diet, exercise, setting better work/life boundaries, etc.). Another: Every day I get to write something just for me (not for a grant or brochure or other formal work assignment). I feel my creative batteries recharge every time I journal!

This month marks a year ago that I happened upon an FB mention of 750words.com and decided to check it out. I have been committed to the site ever since. And more importantly, to my self and my writing. The process keeps me engaged— the badges keep me coming back!

This site has brought home to me the value of commitment and how to keep it, no matter the excuses that are conjured up. You only need to begin and continue.

It is a long journey from 200 days to 365 days. Maybe a 300 days badge?

This site is simple and effective, I’m closing in on 250K words and the little badges motivate me more than I should admit, like gold stars for grownups. Thank you!

I’ve found that writing here helps me remember that the joy of writing comes from the act of writing itself. When I write here, I do it for me and that reminds me why I love being a writer. Write for you for this challenge!

I really want to stick with it this month! I tend to procrastinate until late in the day, and then I can simply forget. So I want to develop the habit of writing early. I hope I learn…

I know there are some people who start on day one and never stop. That wasn’t me. I didn’t write a word for months, until I came back in July. And now I have written 31 days in a row, my longest streak ever. So for those who struggle, I get it. I have just finally gotten my albatross a year and a half after originally signing up for this wonderful site. Thank goodness it was still here when I was ready to come back.

750 words is something that I do every day, and that I enjoy doing every day. I think this is a fantastic way to clear everything out, and I hope that more and more people begin to use this site as a resource. I recommend it to everyone that I meet, especially to creative minded people who are looking for this kind of an outlet.

This isn’t for more badges, but just to add the Blue Horse badge multiple times for every month challenge you complete. I’ve completed several month challenges (three, I think), but I only have one horse badge. If we got one every time with the date of completion, we could then use the badges of a record of which months we competed and completed. Thanks!

I didn’t see “Note of Gratitude” as an option so I’ll just add mine here. Thanks, Buster. For this site and Health Month and for restoring my streak which I lost, (through no fault of my own!), just days before the end of the month which I know is a very busy time for you an yet today I see that I don’t have to go all the way back through Albatross— again. You’re my Hero!

Although this site is intended for journal writing, I use it to help me write my rough draft for my novel. It helped me keep writing every day, and not drop the project. I’m almost to the end. I had also recommended this site to other fellow writers, and now they also use it.

Thanks for helping me write!
