Number of posts and other blog randomlies

I was looking through posts that I've written but not yet published - because I just don't feel like writing something this morning. I discovered that I have written a total of 3,114 posts on this blog. 2885 have been published. That leaves me with 229 still in draft form (written but not yet published). Some of them are things that I've written but didn't think I should share publicly. Some are from days when I have written multiple posts in a day and only wanted to publish one.

Which, I have to say, one of the things I am kind of proud of is the consistency with which I have kept up this blog. I realize it is not a great blog or anything, and my content isn't very worthwhile, but you do have to admit that I have been pretty darn consistent for quite a few years now. I just now had to look it up, and I started this blog in October of 2005. That means I'm going on 8 years.

I also don't know how many people have ever realized that one of my trademarks is to only capitalize the first word of my post titles. I don't remember when I started that, or why, but I do. Just one of those things.

Anyway, I'm not trying to brag or anything like that. I just didn't know what else to write about today... so this is what it is. I like blogging. Someday I should probably update to a new format/template though.

Actually, I hold your consistency in writing up as a model of something I would like to get to, if not in blogging per se, then at least SOMEWHERE.

So...when're ya going to write your book? :)

I think it is great that you've kept this going and always look forward to reading what you have to say. Very proud.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm sure I wouldn't be the same if not for either of you. One a little more than the other but.... you know. ;)

And, interesting you should mention the book, Jim. I was just thinking about it the other day. :)
