204 Consecutive Days of Posts

I missed this milestone a few days ago, so I’ll mention it now. Today is my 204th consecutive day of posting here on the blog. My goal at the beginning of the year was to get back to writing and posting every day here, and so far, more than halfway through the year, I seem to be meeting that goal. In 204 days I’ve written 225 posts totaling 137,000 words, and averaging about 600 words each. It amounts to four times what I wrote for all of 2020.

It is not always easy. Sometimes I am at a loss of what to write about, but I sit down anyway and write. Some posts are better than others, and some posts that I think would get more attention go almost unnoticed. But I keep it up, and it is one of the highlights of my day when I sit down to write here.

I just bought myself a celebratory beer and am enjoying the milestone. And I’m looking forward to the 161 days remaining in the year, wondering what the heck I’m going to write about to make my quota for each day. Of course, thinking about what to write is one of the best parts.

  1. What an effort! And you’ve written MORE than once per day too, which is crazy awesome. I find that even my weekly schedule is hard to stick to. Thanks for being an inspiration!

  2. I love reading your posts, every morning when I wake up one of the first things I do is read what you and a few other bloggers have written… I enjoy every one of those posts, even the silly ones or, let’s say, the ones that are not “that serious”.

    Keep up the good work, it is appreciated.
