A Token Post

James Proclaims (4)

Hello dear readers and welcome back to the multi-award nominated blog, James Proclaims. Since the end of March 2020 I have been posting on a daily basis but I almost didn’t manage to post anything today. As it is I’m already over twelve hours late in posting this, given that my usual arbitrary blogging time is 5am Greenwich Mean Time. This is because I have been struggling to find time to write anything of late. Normally when I have this problem I resort to syllable-based poetry but I’ve been making a concerted effort not to do that as much any more. Apart from yesterday when I did do exactly that.

So I’m posting this instead. I don’t know what this is. I don’t think it’s anything really. I just didn’t want to end my blogging streak when I was so close to hitting the magical ‘one year of consecutive daily blogging milestone’. I’ve had this blog since 2015 and I’ve never managed to go 365 days without having a break before and I do so want to be a part of that special club. I don’t if there is a cool badge that comes with the membership but I’m very tempted to make my own if there isn’t.

Anyway, this post is essentially worthless, and I’m sorry if you wasted your time reading it. It is very much a ‘token post’. However, as the word ‘token’ can be synonymous with ‘coupon’ and ‘voucher’, I would like you to offer you this post as a token which you can use to get up to 20% off any of my other posts, subject to terms and conditions.

Obviously as all of my posts are entirely free (and overpriced at that) then this ‘token post’ remains worthless, but I still thought that it was a nice gesture on my part.

    I thought it would be twenty percent fewer words in the next post.

      You are certainly welcome to skip 20% of the words in all my posts with this token.

        Uh-oh. I usually just click, “I agree” on those things.

    I’m sure there must be some award for posting over 300 haiku in only 365 days, surely?

      It seems implausible that there wouldn’t be one

    If there ain’t no badge cobble one up yourself. A years worth deserves a first birthday present, surely?
    Don’t let your long playing record be unbroken,
    Make it another winning post, however token.

    If I took 20% off many of your other posts especially the haiku’s They would become meaningless to. I’ll keep the coupon for future use

    Keep laughing, It’s all we have left
