Hello! Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve checked in with y’all. I’m still here! And now I have something non-750words.com to show you, but that is sort of related to the idea.
Do you like 750 Words but wish it was a lot lighter? Like, a LOT lighter? Like 160 characters at a time instead of 750 words?
I am in the VERY early testing stages of a new “app” called Peabrain. It’s a private journal that you update via SMS and which provides you with ways to remember things over time (hashtags, usernames, daily prompts, reminders about things from the past, etc).
Think Twitter except completely private, with no following people, and you can only favorite your own memories and notes. :)
It requires SMS so it costs me money at the moment, and is only available in the US and Canada, but I’d love to open it up to a couple more people who “get” the idea of private journaling like y’all do.
One of the reasons I built 750 Words initially was because I found myself constantly needing a place to dump all of my brain’s random thoughts without having to worry about organizing them. Going all the way to 750 was important to help think things through, but I find myself often just wanting to write a quick note to remember something, or to capture a memory, without having to tweet it out or make it public.
If this sounds interesting at all to you, check it out here! And let me know what you think.
In the meantime, keep writing!
