Today is looking dangerously like the first day in a while when I won’t update this blog.
I’ve been blogging consistently for days on end now. I haven’t yet let something like ‘having nothing to write about’ get in my way.
I’ve hit a few milestones along the way.
On the 21st June I completed the ‘blogging landmark’ of 30 posts in 30 days. Then I kept the run going and blogged every day for the whole of June. Two days ago I achieved a phenomenal 40 posts in 40 days and, to top it all, yesterday was my 50th post on James Proclaims. I only started this blog on May 10th. If the benchmark of success is quantity over quality then I’m truly a talent to behold.
…this week has been a nightmare week at work, I’ve stayed late most evenings and still the posts have kept coming.
…the weather has been unbearably hot, but, even though I’ve been flagging, I’ve continued writing.
I’ve scraped the barrel, I’ve produced things that no-one should ever have to read. A review of drumstick pencils? Come on people, we’re all better than that…
And now it’s going to have to stop.
I’m already in work and there’s every chance I’m going to the pub tonight so if I was to post something then my colleagues (some of whom read this stuff) would know I’ve been blogging during work time and that’s just unprofessional…
No, I’m just not going to have time to blog today and we’re all just going to have to deal with that.
I’m sorry, I’d have loved to have kept the run going but sometimes you just have to accept that if there isn’t anything to write about and no time to write it, it would be absolutely preposterous to insist on posting something just for the sake of it.
