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.

It would be great to be able to insert photos into our writing! I have been trying to find a way to get a picture into my 750 words, but after weeks of trying, I finally will admit to defeat. By the way, I live this site, and have succeeded to write everyday since i first joined up with a free account! When I ran out of my 30 free days of membership, I actually got out of bed, woke up my parents, and forced my mom to sign me up so I would not miss a day.

I’m not always the best at keeping up with my daily pages (I don’t even want to calculate how long I’ve been on the Wall of Shame), but that I keep trying is a testament to this site. I genuinely appreciate that Buster and Kellianne have centered the entire space around the simple act of writing — no bells, no whistles, just words. (And badges — I do love the badges — but even those turn all the attention back on the writing!)

I just want to encourage all of you to keep getting back on the horse (of awesomeness) if you miss a day. It’s worth it!

Wow. Today I reached 2 million words written on this site. That number boggles my mind a bit. When I started here, about four and a half years ago, I never dreamed that it would become a habit that would continue for this long and have so many amazing results. I am on a streak that has lasted over 1500 days and I have no intention of breaking it anytime soon. This site has saved my sanity on more than one occasion. I have a place where I can come in the morning and just dump the contents of my brain onto the page and sort out what I need for the day and what can just stay there. It has helped me clear the clutter and move into the day with a fresh perspective. I am immensely grateful to Kellianne and Buster for creating a place for me to do that. Morning Pages were a goal of mine, ever since I worked with the Artist’s Way when it first came out. But I didn’t keep up the habit. This site has helped foster that habit, and I am excited to see what comes out of the next million words on my page! Thank you so much!

Eternity - bring it back

On of the features I really enjoyed was the ETERNITY feature. It seems to have been removed. Please bring it back.

I don’t really like that regardless of how I format my writing, once it’s saved it turns back into the huge block it was before. I don’t personally write poetry, but I’m sure some of our poetry writing members would enjoy keeping the formatting of their poems.

One of my favorite parts of doing my daily words is looking at all the nifty stats and pie charts for the day at the end. It’s one of the motivators I have if I feel tempted to quit early in an entry. If I could request anything, it would be more analysis and stats on the daily stats page.

I have been suffering from depression for a long while now and totally lacked any interest in writing (among other things). Now that I’m feeling like I’m recovering, I really want to get back into it, but I’m finding it difficult. Having this space and a steady daily goal really helps with that. And the more I do it, the more I am able to move beyond spilling words all over the page just for the sake of writing something and start to actually craft essays and stories intentionally. Thank you!

Specifically the ability to bold and italicize. Maybe strikethrough. Other people have asked for more formatting options, but honestly this is all I’m interested in personally.

I love this site. I am back after a long period time, and it feels good to be writing, again.

750 words has helped me tremendously. Without going into too much detail, because I am a very private person when it comes to my morning pages, I like to devote the first half or so to positive affirmations and the second half to any self-reflection, ranting, or ruminating that I feel I need at the time. I recommend this method, as the positive affirmations definitely help your mood. Just make sure they’re in the present tense. More notes to come. I just wanted to share my process in case others are interested. Peace

Bold, italics, list formating, and page orientation.

It would be nice to get the formatting options in the title of this request. I would be willing to pay for a premium membership that cost $10 per month if it had these options.

This site has saved me, inspired me and I recommend it to people all the time. I clear my head of static and plan for the day, review where I am and work out art or writing projects. Since a few years ago I have begun each entry with a haiku. I have a goal of writing a thousand haikus and I am nearly there just by beginning each day’s entry with one.
Thank you guys so much for this. I love it.

This page has been a great help to me several times over the last years when I really needed it. The first time I found it as a great place to vent about issues in my life, good and bad, that needed the form of words to process. Now it has become a great tool for keeping up with the ritual and practice of Morning Pages as part of rediscovering my creative side. Thank you for an elegant contribution to the world’s writers and aspiring creatives!

I know for a fact that this has been requested already multiple times, but I think that badges are a great way to inspire me to keep on going.

Oh, and are those people who get the Flying Squirrel badge even human?

750 Words is a great way to get me warmed up for a writing session. I used it regularly when I was working on my dissertation. Now that I’m transitioning to life as a writer, I use it for fleshing out story ideas and clearing my mind. Thanks, 750Words!

Give entries a title!

Wouldn’t it be great to give each entry a title? That way it would be easier to dig through your archives and find past entries, don’t you think? For example, I could title today’s entry as “Broke personal sales record today!”. Hope you like the idea :)

I learned about Morning Pages about a year ago, but… couldn’t do it! I bought a journal, I put it along with my pen on my night table.. Nada! But 750words.com got me writing! I wrote my first MP today. I’m beyond happy, and it was so easy, I typed from my phone! Good luck to all of you! Cheers!☕️

I’m back for the first time since September last and closing in on that flamingo for the umpteenth time since I started on this site. But I feel better than fine now… missed that daily mind dump more than I ever thought I would. Folks who should know say I’m a LOT less grumpy. Also thankful: a friend loaned me her spare until I can resuscitate or replace my failed lap top. Words rock. Even if they are written in secret and when reread make no kind of sense. Write on…
