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.

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?

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.

What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Post-it note to self

Prolific bloggers
This website & blog is about the one in the middle, spirit.

 

It happens way less than it used to, but every once in a while i have to pause and take stock of the progress that’s accumulated over the past seven-plus years.

Today is one of those rare days.

If you ask me right now how many blog posts i have written, i’ll say, “Not sure.”

So, to answer that…

7 years x 365 days = 2,555 days

2 leap years add 2 days = 2,557 days

April – June 2016 add 91 days = 2,648 days

July 1 – July 8, 2016 (today) add 8 days = 2,656 days

2,656 days x 5 blogs per day = 13, 280 blog posts

• • • • •

Bonus: Include the 90-day surplus of posts waiting to be published, add 450 posts…

13,280 + 450 = 13,730 posts written since April Fools Day 2009.

Prior to April 1, 2009, i had never written more than two consecutive days and had never written five posts in a single day.

That was a long winded way to ask you this:

What are you capable of doing that seems impossible?

But if you only worried about one day at a time, you could do something extraordinary?

Final thought, the other thing i began on April 1, 2009 was to begin each morning on bended knees and say three simple prayers…2,656 days in a row.
