There is no check on the emails and the content we write on the page, looks a lot like a spam page and complete waste of time.

Pros:

Okay UI.

Cons:

spammy design, bad usage.

Share
Some of my league.

I have not found any useful insights from this, I don't understand how this application can help me in anyway with this idea.

Pros:

Nice habit

Cons:

Worst writing experience, not useful

Share
Two of which is always welcomed.

Writing of the content has no verifications, looks spammy.

Pros:

Design

Cons:

Not a friendly design of the application

Share
Not trying to keep it movin.

Not well designed to serve the user expectations, looks like its more of a straight copy of the other websites. bad.

Pros:

Naive design

Cons:

Ameture concept

Aiming for the impossible!

Are you a bad writer?

You aren't until you prove it to this community. If you write 200 words a day for one year and your writing skill doesn't improve — maybe you are not a very good writer. But until then — you can't say that you are bad or good at it.

And if you really want it, I'm sure this platform could help you become a better writer — just be consistent and keep writing and learning!

Practice. Every. Day.

Pros:

Great community. Simple interface. You write and actually improve..

Cons:

Nooooo.

I have been writing on this platform since it was born and from experience of using it, you have nothing to lose other than taking a short time a day to brainstorm of what to write and to write 200 words.

Pros:

1. Writing Improvement

2. Read a lot of articles from other writers

3. Brainstorming of what to write daily

4. Its is just 200 words a day!

Cons:

Have to write everyday, which indirectly converts to a personal advantage

This "Cons: Have to write everyday" though 🤣 Thanks for the review and for being a part of this since day 1 👏 👏
design + public good + indie maker

I'd been using it for 1 month now and had never written so much within such a short period. 200 words per day is a surprisingly low barrier. I often start thinking I won't make it to 200 words but before I know it, it's past 300 words already. It's like the motivation hack where you do 1 rep in your workout. Streaks were super helpful in nudging me to keep at it. Love the minimalist, distraction-free interface for writing. Best part is getting inspiration for writing from others in the community! We borrow ideas, formats, and questions that lead us to writing our own piece. The community is probably the most exciting and promising part of the product.

Pros:

Streaks for motivation. 200words is a low barrier. Baz is super committed to it too. Requested features added within the same day!

Cons:

Not much.

Awesome review Jason :) Thanks for joining!
Software Engineer

When I write I make a lot of mistakes in grammar and spelling. I feel like this should at least highlight these errors as the browser does by default, but it seems it is disabled, making writing a nightmare.

It's also low signal as it doesnt seem to have many users, and the users that are there write spam. The top articles are sex ads from Pure Romance... wtf?!

Pros:

Design like Medium

Cons:

Low signal, kinda spammy, doesn't underline spelling errors

Sorry about the spam issue :) As I'm the only maker on it it's tedious to be 24/7 on it to monitor the content. I'm improving it daily so feel free to suggest me anything that could help with your experience!
Also really love to try new things.

The idea is kinda cool, but it is so littered with MLM spam. Someone is trying to sell Pure Romance on this site... it ruins it when I have to look closely to find a community post. Where is the content moderation???

Pros:

cool platform, maker himself uses it

Cons:

so much spam

Content Writer at Lanistar.

It's the greatest platform that teaches someone, lazy like me to wake up in the morning and write something. 200 words a day. Plus if you are a non-native English speaker or whatever language you are planning on mastering, it's the perfect platform to write every day and to become better!

You have to give it a try!

Pros:

Fantastical way to create a habit of writing. Great community of writers!

Cons:

I don't understand what this word Cons means.

Thanks pen pal :) Glad you enjoy it!

This site came at the right time for me. I needed to establish a daily writing habit. Having this tool, which allows me to track my streak and publish "quick hits," has been very valuable.

Pros:

Clean interface that makes it easy to just dive in and write and also connect with the community.

Cons:

None so far

Thanks for the review Brandon! :) And thanks for gifting us your wisdom with your writings

Like most people I procrastinate. This App has helped me find the discipline to write each day. The gamification feature that shows how many days your "streak" is alive has given me the extra "nudge" some days when I didn't feel like doing shit. I highly recommend it.

Pros:

Thanks to Basile, the DEV who created 200 Words A Day, I am adding"writing" to my talent stack."

Cons:

none

thanks for the review Mark! :) Glad to read you every day
Founder @Statalog | Asks "why?" too much

What's there to say? If you thought Microsoft's basic Notepad was simple, then you've never used @200WordsADay. This is the best interface I have ever seen for a word "processor." I love having the ability to give each post tags. I didn't expect it, but I love that everyone can and does see me posts. The comments are all helpful and thoughtful. We are all there for similar reasons and looking for a positive experience.

I love to support @Makers @Entrepreneurs @SmallBiz, so I upgraded to the Patron account today. I'm not sure what it changes for me, but that's just because I didn't pay attention. I know the site showed the differences.

Pros:

Easy, clean, inspiring

Cons:

Thought I was stuck in a different time zone. Ah well, I guess I should've looked in the settings sooner.
