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 two sons (Niko and Louie) and this is something we've built and run in our spare time.

not more badges per se, but maybe add a note to each earned badge informing how many times we’ve completed the one month challenge, for example, or how many times we’ve been back to the egg badge ಠ_ಠ

I love how being a member has kept me on track. I look forward to getting up in the morning to get on 750words.com to see if I can maintain my streak and to get my ideas down somewhere. I am happy to be a member of this site and will continue to use it daily. Thanks for creating a great place to write!

This works! sometimes i write useful things for work, sometimes i write and make personal discoveries, sometimes i write nonsense or trivia, writing just to write,but over time this has done something for me that is hard to explain-it is starting the day with the knowledge that i have taken a step forward even if I’don’t understand the step and won’t look at it again ,but still, I have put these words down every day no matter what and because of that ,something has slowly changed and there has been a shift in my sense of myself as a writer and possibly a person

It’s really tough to write use the iPhone or iPad via browser to do the daily words. Would love an app that made it more streamlined and easier to write on the go.

As a writer I struggle (like most) to find the time to write. Truth is it doesn’t take that long at all to write 750 words and once you start you can’t stop. I love how easy it is with the countdown and daily tick off! Thank you for making my life much easier!

I love my journal time, and 750words makes it so much easier! I love the process – when I write, the ideas flow, and I create my “to-do” list, and others. I can complete projects because I’ve been able to think ideas through. I can’t imagine my days without journaling, and I’m grateful for 750words to get me through the process!

This site has been there for me through divorce, school, a 500+ mile move, career changes, and more. I have written through tears and laughter, and have used it to sort my thoughts as I make decisions and try to figure out my life. I am so grateful for a platform to get it all out without having to keep up with reams of paper! I recommend it to all my friends and through it all, keep writing. One day at a time.

This site is so crucial to organizing my thoughts before the day. I just hope one day I can donate $1000 because that’s how much this service has meant to me.

Bunch of topics and boards used to discuss people’s writing journey, resources that are used to help in bettering the writing skill/process and putting together some more community interaction.

More text analysis

A lot of things have become apparent about my writing style in practice, but more features that may be more unconscious to the writer being tracked and displayed would be helpful, as well as boxes that display tips on how to use less common grammar symbols such as the semi-colon and hyphen.

Something Mobile Friendly.

I love using 750 words, but it can be difficult on the iPad. Sometimes it does not save if I paste a large amount of my writing from another location, it will not scroll or it signs me out repeatedly. I do not know if this is easy to fix, but having an app or i-device-friendly page would be great.

Thank you!

I first started 750 Words when I was suddenly and unexpectedly given a large writing role at work. I hadn’t done much writing, corporate or otherwise, in the several years since I graduated college, and I could feel the rust coating my mental gears when I’d try to get in a groove. 750 Words has been an incredible help in getting over that initial hump of simply writing, whether it’s a journal entry, an idea for a personal project, or a brainstorming session for work copy. All in all, I couldn’t be more grateful for the team and community in helping me feel less like an imposter and more like a writer again!

I’ve sort of come and gone from 750Words, but am back and in the midst of my longest streak to date. I’ve used it as a “brain dump” where I try (don’t always succeed) to get up in the morning and commit my 750, not trying to craft great prose but just getting it down and filling it up. I’ve found that during my stretches away from being a member I actually experience mental constipation. So I’ll keep at it, a day at a time. If nothing else my typing is now north of 40 WPM, and I’m sure there are other benefits that I’m not even aware of. Thanks for making this site, Kellianne and Buster.

About a month ago I decided I need to get my brain healthier so I decided to journal, play brain games, do yoga and talk a walk daily. This website has been such a blessing. I’ve kept up with it everyday and I can feel myself getting emotionally healthier. I did therapy for about 3 years and I feel this is even better as I’m able to dump whatever is on my brain every day. Getting validation from the stats is icing on the cake!

I appreciate the orderly design and lack of distraction on the site. It does everything I want it to and nothing that I don’t. I happily recommend it to friends.

It really helps to slow down my anxious thoughts and reflect on my life. Part-meditation, part-timeout from my day.
