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 days, 79 days, 100 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?
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.
- 860 Posts (387)
- 107,100 Words (45,324)
- 2,078 Links (679)
- 1,139 Images (630)
- 205 Videos (68)

I guess we’ve decided to end the Daily Post, so this week is the last photo challenge and the theme is all-time favorites.
I took this photo in 2016 during a road trip up the West coast from L.A. to Seattle. It was a bit chilly and we were disappointed with the fog, but it made for some cool pictures.
I’m looking forward to doing some interior work on the truck this summer, like cleaning up these hanging radio wires.
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.
Hello Barcelona! I’d love to have a place in the hills or mountains some day.
My lease is up in a few weeks and I’ll be out of the country for a week, so there is no chance I’m getting the oil changed. Hopefully I won’t have to gas up again either.
How fitting that I picked up tamales for lunch today with the photo challenge focusing on lines.
All of these air tool “bullets” need some type of organizer. Maybe boxes on small French cleats near the actual tools.
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.
