An Odd Number

What an odd number 1,413 is to use as a milestone. Why not 1,400? Or better yet, 1,500?

1,413 days is 3.87 years. Why not wait until my streak hit four years? It’s also 47.1 months. Shouldn’t they have waited until 48 months? Or 50 months?

I just find it a bit odd, don’t you? Especially since I’ve been posting every day since I started this blog and this is the first “streak” notification WordPress has ever sent me. Am I going to get one tomorrow congratulating me upon reaching 1,414 days?

    I’ve had one too Fandango. This has to be the latest ‘craze’ by WP. I’m waiting for the punchline. Better not cost me anything!!

    I’ve had several. They pop up intermittently with no rhyme or reason other than it’s an oddball number as you said. I should ask them if there is a prize in this for me! 🤣

    Abell 1413 is located 2 billion light years away from Earth between the constellations of Leo and Coma Berenices. It is one of 4,073 clusters of galaxies at redshift (meaning they are moving away from earth,) that are somewhat close to the Earth. Abell 1413 holds about 300 galaxies together with its strong gravity.

      Thank you for clearing that up for me, Jim. And to think I thought it was just a random number.

    fucking hell, you don’t think WordPress might have bugs in it, do you?

    I get those streak notifications most days! Every time I post I get a congratulations, you’ve posted for 22 days in a row, or however many days it is. xoxo

      Interesting. Today was the very first time I got that “streak” notification.

    I get those posts sometimes when I haven’t posted on consecutive days so I started to wonder if they were buggy too.
