Since April Fools Day, 2009. There are 300 more posts already written but not yet published.

 

Pausing to count the blog posts.

Every once in a while i think about it.

Nine years and almost seven months and counting – one day at a time.

Pausing this morning in Towson, Maryland.

Stuff We Do

Three-thousand, four-hundred, sixty-nine

Catholic Priest using iPhone
Interestingly enough, i have spent many mornings writing on an iPhone.

 

The ability to write five daily, differently-themed blogs comes from somewhere.

But i honestly don’t know from where.

Maybe God.

Wherever it comes from, it’s been 9.5 years (three-thousand, four-hundred, sixty-nine consecutive days). (this includes two leap year days – Feb 29)

Happy Gnu Year. Gnu year’s resolutions (resolve) can begin anytime.

 

The 15,000th blog post is 50 days away. on July 18.

Eight years and 110 days since beginning that impossible April Fool’s Day launch in 2009.

Didn’t it take 40 years of walking around Jericho for the walls to finally crumble?

What happens when you reach the finish line?

Our Son (16) inspires me to not kill bugs.

Pretty big spider. Quarter on the right.

Next to a quarter.

Free at least. i felt good about this in an unusually nice way.

 

What happens when you reach the finish line?

You automatically reach another starting line.

This post concludes the 8th consecutive year writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts (on 5 separate sites), without missing a single day.

Tomorrow, the starting line for year nine.

The Other Side

Some days it doesn’t happen in the morning

10 grade XC runner
Three days ago he had multiple reasons to quit, but he finished anyway.

 

Some days it doesn’t happen in the morning; writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts every day.

Everyday for 7.3 years.

Normally, all five are written before sunrise.

On those days when the pressure of a busy schedule is higher and the duration is long, i’m tempted to finally make an exception to the not missing a single day part.

But i don’t succumb.

Ever.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
