1,000 Daily Posts

Yesterday I hit 1,000 days in a row of posting on this blog. Wow! It’s crazy to think about. Have you ever done something for 1,000 days straight that wasn’t a human function, like eating, sleeping, etc?

My streak started on November 10, 2016 on a work trip to Iceland. I remember thinking I would keep it going for a little while, but never expected to reach 4 digits. Over the streak I’ve published 1,136 posts, which included 139,371 words, 2,674 links, 1,571 images, and 272 Videos. You can also check out my posts when I hit 41 days79 days100 days, 1 year, and 2 years.

This post will extend the streak to 1,001 days, which could be the end. Over the last few months it has become a chore to make sure I publish and some of the enjoyment has disappeared because there have been days when I’ve had to find something for a post at 7 or 8 at night. Going forward, I’ll publish when I have something to publish and I’ve deleted my daily reminder to remove the pressure.

I couple of days ago I noticed it was the 8,000th post on this blog, which is also a pretty big milestone. Any bets on when I’ll get to 10,000?

Daily Posts For 2 Years

Yesterday’s post finished year two of publishing every day on my blog. Seven hundred and thirty days! I never expected to last so long.

How about some updated stats? Totals for the streak are displayed first with the counts for year two in parentheses.

Photo Challenge: Liquid

It’s been a rainy Saturday, so a good fit for the liquid theme this week. I tried to get a shot of the roof in my sunroom with a bunch of ripples but wasn’t very successful.

Photo Challenge: Awakening

I’m struggling with the “awakening” theme for this week’s photo challenge. While it’s the middle of April, spring is nowhere to be found here in Michigan. It’s 39° outside with a big winter storm starting in the morning. Nothing is growing yet. The best I could come up with is hope, which I what I thought when I saw these rose bushes at Sam’s Club.
