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.

Prev Entry - Next Entry Buttons

While the little boxes up top on the site are great when reading on a laptop, they are not so great when trying to read on mobile, especially since the hovering date sometimes doesn’t come up. It would be nice to have prev entry – next entry buttons somewhere on the page – maybe at the bottom? – to make navigating through close entries just that much easier. Thank you for your awesome work on the site!

10 cups for 10 years :)
I’ve been using it for 10 years since December 31st 2011. I find this website to be very inspirational, intellectually engaging and life enriching. The first year I lived on my own I journaled for the first 375 days straight without missing one day and did my 750 words each of those days. It really helped me refine my thought process and improve my overall quality of life I’ve fallen off the write everyday bandwagon but I do plan to do write everyday in 2022. Thank you Buster for creating this fabulous website. I hope that I’ll be using this website well into the 2030s and beyond.

I have always been an avid writer of thoughts and things. My tools have always been pen and paper. In the last year or so it has been difficult to keep up that practice. Lucky for me (and the rest of my fellow writers) Buster and Kellianne have provided this wonderful site for us to store our words and motivate us to keep on writing. I am proud to say that I earned my Phoenix (100 day) and my first flock (100,000 words) badges. But I am also grateful to have this place to sort through my thoughts and dreams and emotions. Thank you Buster and Kellianne!

Who knew I would be able to write 750 words everyday for more than a year and not know what to say here? Other than thank you for contributing towards making that happen, and helping me look after my mental health everyday! Thank you!

Mainly I want to say that I hope everyone connected with this site, from Buster and Kellianne, to all my fellow writers, are having a meaningful holiday season in spite of all the craziness that is going on in the world. I also want to say Thank You—not just to Buster and Kellianne, who are awesome in maintaining this site, but to all who partake of it. A wise man once said that company is stronger than will power, and to me 750 Words is an example of that. As tricky as it seems at times to get my Words in, it helps that you are all writing as well. And I’m grateful for the centeredness and clarity of undersatnding that the site has given me over the many years that I’ve been present here every day. Peace and blessings to all in the New Year!

I would love to suggest getting an SSL certificate set up so that the connection between browser and server gets encrypted.

Could just be a Let’s Encrypt one, doesn’t have to infer any costs or a lot of work.

Good morning my fellow wordsmiths and scribblers,
I just wanted to pop in here and say this 750 words site has helped keep me going strong on my daily writing habit. I have been doing my morning pages since 1997 when I came across The Artist’s way by Julia Cameron. that book helped change the whole course of my life. I have many many notebooks of morning pages, and that being said, I love the 750 word program! The badges are a simple concept but they help keep me on track becasue I want to get all the badges abd double stars every morning. so simple a thing but it works for me! and it’s encouraging to see so many others doing their writing as well. Community is a lovely thing. so i will continue on and if a miss a day and have to start over , i will laugh at myself and continue on! MY next target is a Pheonix and i have 20 more days to go to get there!
Happy writing!
Lauren

Improve the writing page

allow for different font styles such as italic, bold and sizing to be edited/seen in real-time of composition. Also, allow for different coloured font throughout. (also, just ideas of course and love the website!!! xo) maybe analysis that relates to how it might sound like you are feeling would be cool or synonyms/dictionary definitions of words you are using overlay to ensure you are accurate/precise/best with your verbiage (like what exactly does verbiage mean?) xxoxoxo

Very grateful for you, Buster and Kellianne, for creating this site and maintaining it. It’s been so helpful for me to use it daily, to check in with myself and discover what’s really going on with me. Since I can be highly reactive when situations upset me, this site gives me a ‘pause’ space to really think about things before reacting. My life is much more peaceful and present as a result. It’s an important service you provide. Thank you!

it helps me to think more clearly, and clear my head of unconscious negativity, to see things more clearly.

For anyone who has written for a long time, the badges are too few and far in between. More badges will help to keep motivating people.

Thanks for the great recovery of our streaks and your hard work Buster and Kellie!! Life is clearer with those 750 words each day!!

Thanks so much for all you do with this site. An example of your hard word and graciousness: the recent outage and how you got the site back up and fixed all broken streaks.

I found 750words at the time I feel out of energy, lonely and tired. I can’t see the road forward, no one has patient enough to listen to my sharing, no one can give me the way how I should step up. I go back to my inner and recheck everything, understanding myself first. I believe I will meet a brighter road ahead

I quit writing here for a while… and turns out I just quit writing. Because I can’t write if it’s not here. *Sigh

The setup is simple -

And I have bipolar disorder, so I’m easily distracted because I think too much and worry too much – and get anxious too much SO…

I can easily/quickly change the size of the font and the color – and the color of the background. That way I can quickly get back to writing before I lose that drive. :)

I’d recommend 750 words to anyone who loves to write.

I started writing on this page a month ago. I have been writing every single day. It has become my routine. I feel nice whenever I am writing here. It is my private time here. Thank you so much 750 words. I look forward to write every single day for the rest of my life. Much love.

Thank you so much for clearing up the recent outage so quickly, and for restoring my streak! I did not realize how emotionally invested I was in keeping it going until I thought it might have been broken. It was eye opening, and I will not be taking this site and all it offers for granted again.

I’m so grateful for this safe space every day to get the words down.
Thank you for creating this site for all of us.
