A Milestone For Me

Back in August I made a commitment to followers of this blog that I was going to write in this blog every single day for as long as I could. That was on August 9, 2019. Today marks the 300th day after that. Yes, I have missed a couple of times but even having missed some days, I still, with this post, have 297 posts for a total of 3 missed posts.

From my perspective that’s pretty incredible since I have a hard time with being consistent. I started this blog on Oct 4, 2004 with a post called, “To Blog or Not To Blog.” From October 4th, 2004, until the day I made the commitment, August 9, 2019 I only had a total of 300 entries. In other words, I have posted more in these last 300 days than I did for most of the life of the blog.

    Congrats! That is a big thing, brother! When we commit to an endeavor like this, it makes it easier to accomplish other tasks. A pattern is formed.

    I am in the same boat on an endeavor. Life’s challenges make it hard, but I committed. You are an example helping me to keep going and we love reading this blog. Thank you for your burden to deliver, no matter what!

    That’s so cool! Seriously! It’s hard to be that consistent

      Thanks, Anonymous. It is hard work, and not every entry is a winner, but it’s important for me to do it, as you’ll see in this evening’s scheduled post.

    Good job
    I read the first blog and want to know about Carter and pinball

    Stay well and Laugh

      Thanks, Anonymous! Actually, I think the second or third post tells the story of how I tilted the pinball machine on him. I honestly did not know it would do that when I nudged it, but I must have nudged it harder than I thought.

    Bless you Herb for such consistent effort and demonstration of strength.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I don’t know about the strength part.

        Pesistence is strength.
