Once Google acquired Writely they closed the doors to new members. However, it is still possible to get into Writely and be able to use it. CyberNet News currently has 49 ‘invitations’ to join Writely, and if you want one continue reading.
These are not really invitations, but I will briefly go through how it will work. To invite someone to join I simply create a document. I then add someone (by email address) to be a collaborator on that document. Writely then sends an email to that user saying that they can now join Writely and they provide a temporary password. Then all you have to do is go here and login with the email address you provided and the temporary password they emailed you.
So this is how it will work:
- Leave a comment below with your email address. You ONLY have to place your email address in the email field so that it does not get posted on this page. This will prevent your email address from getting spammed.
- Periodically during the day I will send out these invitations. I am not always going to be at my computer so you may not get it immediately.
- The first 49 comments will get an invitation, and please do not double post a comment. Anyone that posts more than one comment will not receive an invitation.
- I will be constantly giving away invitations…so check back here frequently!
