This is my 1000th post on this blog. The time between my very first post and this post is 1281.087 days. So I've been averaging about 0.781 posts per day, or one post every 1.281 days. Otherwise expressed as one post every 30 hours, 44 minutes and 46 seconds. Or so. I love extra meaningless digits.
For those looking quickly and wondering why my 1000th post has the id "1004" instead of 1000, it is because there were several posts which were accidentally double posted over the years. The second copy was immediately "closed" so it isn't actually visible, although I have them in the database cause they did sort of happen, but not really. So this is the 1000th real post. Well, strictly speaking the very first post was a default first post by the software, but I left it live, so it counts. :-) But those invisible duplicates don't. I know I could have decided they did, but they don't darn it! :-)
Anyway, I roughly try for one post a day, so I'm a little behind that, but not too much behind. So I'm doing OK.
Now, what I post isn't often the most interesting stuff in the world. Lately even more so than at other times since I started it is just little personal notes that for the most part nobody but me and my immediate circle of friends and family would ever be interested in (and often not them). So there are not really any regular readers that I do not know personally. But that is quite OK. I've tried at times writing little bits of commentary on news or tech or whatever, or posting links to fun things I see online... but both take a decent amount of time to do well that I do not have... not to mention there are many hundreds of better places to get that sort of thing. So... I do more the diary sort of thing with the occasional bits about what is going on with my life, things I'm doing, movies I watch, whatever... just random stuff that strikes me and I want to say. And that is fine with me.
And there are now 1000 of such blurbs. Woo. Go me.
OK, strictly speaking for an average time between posts I should be doing 999 intervals between posts / 1281.087 days instead of 1000 posts / 1281.087 days because the first post was actually effectively the "0th" post and marked the beginning of the first interval between posts... but close enough damn it. the difference is about 111 seconds in the average time between posts. It would be 30 hours, 46 minutes and 37 seconds instead of what I said above.
I take it the additional comments don't count then? Or will there be a "I have made 1000 comments on my blog" post at a later date?
