Measuring by the Month

This is my 89th post. Since launching the blog in August, I’ve been on a pace of posting every couple of days. Most are in response to the Daily Post prompts with some other short stories added in.

There are days where I find the prompt less than inspiring (as do many of you) and I simply ignore it. Other days a response is triggered instantly and within 30 minutes a post takes shape.

Days where I have more free time are spent browsing the DP page to see what treasures you post. I eagerly anticipate discovering the multi-faceted answer to a common prompt. A simple idea receives a multitude of answers in several forms each day. Poetry, photography, short stories, snippets of sarcasm, literal response, and so on. Some of you have regular characters, themes, or consistent perspectives to offer. Others are markedly random in their writing. The variety astounds me.

Some of you have chosen to follow my blog and I am humbled by your attention. I look forward to reading your fresh offerings as well.


What’s the longest stretch you’ve ever pulled off of posting daily to your blog? What did you learn about blogging through that achievement, and what made you break the streak?

  1. I agree, the responses are fascinating. I prevent myself from seeing anyone else’s post until I’ve done my own so I don’t get ideas, and then I go through to see how everyone else interpreted the prompt. I find it a fun morning activity.
