Here is proof of my blogging decline:
2009 was obviously a big year. I think moving to the south was very inspirational. Let's not even talk about 2005! What a statement! ONE post.
To further crunch the numbers and give you an idea of how much one has to "blog" to keep up respectable content:
3 posts a week = 156 posts a year
2 posts a week = 104 posts a year
And for fun, here are my comment stats:
Wondering about the comments awaiting moderation? Some cool spam from hotels in India and religious sites that I haven't brought myself to delete because I may need them for a story prompt or I may need to give my comment numbers a vanity-boost someday.
And finally the total number of posts on this eight-year-old endeavor (if you want to count 2005, nine years):
905 posts! 95 more I will have reached 1000 posts and then I can retire, well, retire this blog anyway. I would hate to set it on the shelf without a nice round number so I'm going for 1000.
I found this handy days-from-now calculator and determined that if I were to start blogging once a day every day from here on out. This blog would retire on July 2nd, 2013 and August 9th if I wanted to take the weekends off.
If I actually post 95 more times this year I will reach 111 posts for 2013 and that is back to 2011 levels! What if I get so inspired that I don't want to get rid of this beaute? We'll just have to see what happens.
