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.

I am a bullet journaller, I like Morning Pages, but having it in a hand written formal annoyed and worried me – what if someone else saw it? I’m a mummy, a wife, a teacher, so many little eyes everywhere! I thought I would not use 750words, as I didn’t think Morning Pages digitally would make me happy, so I dubiously signed up for the free trial (a very generous one!) and now I find I miss it when I don’t do it. Thank you for providing the thing that I need! You are amazingly intuitive!

Maybe something for 1500 or 2000 days in a row?

Thank you so much Buster and Kellianne – I was struggling to find a way to clear my mind until I found you. Now, each morning (or early afternoon, if I’m honest) has me clearing my head. I have gained more clarity in my life, and I’m very thankful.

This site is the foundation of my writing habit. I have never written for so many consecutive days before finding this amazing resource. Thank you!!

especially on difficult days, writing 750 words becomes an act of self care.

I love the badges – anything to compete for, even against myself, motivates me to keep writing. :-)

750 Words keeps me grounded. I mostly use the daily ritual to write down my long term and short term goals. This in turn helps me focus my days work on what’s important. And when life throws unpleasantness my way, the freedom to write it out often takes the edge of the pain, tiredness or problem. Unexpected ideas and solutions sometimes come as a bonus…

750 words has helped me to steel myself every morning, when my anxiety is at it’s worst. I used to wake up frazzled and unsure of what to do with my day but 750 words has helped me to be more efficient with putting my feelings into words and helped to clear out the thoughts eating my concentration away. My mind is clearer and calmer after a writing session and I can concentrate and plan for the things that matter.

I would feel so much better knowing that what I am writing is encrypted and backed up. I hope you will move in this direction!

I love how 750 words has helped me see my state of mind as I make important decisions, and what I care about. It is so useful to see my writing laid out like this, and it has helped me have epiphanies over the last several weeks.

I like the structure of this site. There’s something really refreshing about the idea that every day is a blank page, waiting to be filled with words. I’m finding the daily writing helpful, especially on stressful days. Helps to clear my head at the end of the day!

This has allowed me to get things out of my head that I really needed to get out but didn’t have a safe place to do so. Thanks a bunch.

There is a lot of personal data I put up here, I would love to know that Kellianne and Buster are always looking for ways to ensure that our privacy is kept (Resting data encryption, 2FA).

Just started using this website last month. 23 days and counting of writing 750 or more words. Feels good to get into a groove of writing. Also, the act of clearing out all the unwanted garbage from my head first thing in the day has really helped me get a little more peace.

750Words.com saved my sanity. This morning I passed 2 million words. I’ve completed 750 words for 1374 days in the past six years. Those first few years were rocky attempts to get some routine. My longest “run” was 267 days until I got stuck at an airport in Crete with no wireless. But by then the habit was entrenched.

The first 750 words each day clear my head of all the toxic waste which gathers there. I wake up each morning full of errant thoughts. Writing about each opens them to fresh air. All my problems blow away when exposed.

And then I can write clearly. Which is a good thing because my day job needs a lot of writing.

Thanks Kellianne and Buster.
