I’ve just been replying to my blog comments and spotted this notification from WordPress…
I’m gobsmacked to discover that since I started my blog at the very end of August last year I’ve written 200 posts (actually 202 as I’d posted two more posts before I had a chance to write this one)! I’ve just worked out that it’s approximately 200 days since I started my blog so I’ve averaged one post a day! I have had gaps where I’ve not posted anything and then some days where I’ve posted more than one post but it averages out at one post every single day! I reckon that adds up to a serious blogging addiction! 🙂
As a lot of you will know I started this blog when I was recovering from surgery last summer and I needed a project. Since then my blog has become so much more than a hobby to me, it gives me a real sense of achievement and satisfaction that was missing from my life as my disability continued to worsen.
I continue to blog even though I’m struggling to manage my condition, particularly my pain levels, at the moment because it makes me happy to keep my blog going despite the odds being against me. It would be easy for me to do nothing at all but I need to keep my brain active and focused on positive things so I keep going. I recently discovered how to schedule my posts in advance, and also found an app that allows me to schedule links to my posts on social media. This means that even on the days when I’m not up to blogging my blog still keeps running. I’m also now using dictation software to dictate everything – even my tweets are dictated now! 🙂
Thank you to all my followers for sticking with me. Thank you to everyone who has ever read, liked, commented or shared any of my posts – I do appreciate every single one.
Here’s to the next 200 posts… and beyond!
