Okay, peeps. Here’s the sitch. I just realized I have posted 4,975 posts on this here blog. Before THIS post, anyway. And that number is REALLY close to 5,000. And how GREAT would it be to start 2014, the second decade of my blogging career, with the 5,000th entry. Wouldn’t that be a GREAT thing to be able to do? I don’t have a lot of obsessive compulsive tendencies, but I value good, even, numbers. And I find that even numbers inspire fresh beginnings. I love starting a diet on the first of the month. I love using Monday as a clean slate to organize my week. I love taking a bath in a freshly scrubbed bathtub.
So. I can’t pass up the chance to write my 5,000th blog post on January 1st, 2014. Especially since I started blogging in January 2004.
It’s. Just. Too. Perfect. To. Pass. Up.
You know what that means, don’t you? It means I have to write
24 23 posts in 15 days. I can’t promise you they won’t be short or silly, but I promise you they will be something more than just a twitter status or a picture of my new shoes.
(I don’t have any new shoes.)
Can we do this? I’m ready if you are.
