According to WordPress, as of today I have posted at least one post a day for 1,595 consecutive days. That’s 4.4 years! And my blog has only existed for 4.7 years. So it’s been a very long time since a day passed without me having posted.

Now I’m in a bit of a jam because if I miss a day, I’ll have to start my streak all over again. Oh the pressure to perform. How long can I keep this melody going? And, more important, is it worth it?

Is continuing to post daily really that important? Is the goal of posting daily an effectual use of my time? Is that how I want to encapsulate the remaining days I have left on earth?

You bet your ass it does. What else am I going to do with my time?

Written for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (consecutive), My Vivid Blog (jam), Ragtag Daily Prompt (melody), The Daily Spur (worth), Your Daily Word Prompt (effectual), and Word of the Day Challenge (encapsulate).

    If in doubt that you can keep your clothes on, there’s always scheduling!
    Congrats – longest streak I’ve seen.

    My thoughts, exactly. Why not post as long as we can.

    That’s an impressive run! I’ve had many long breaks in my blogging, so I’m solidly impressed.

    Great work!

    Congratulations on the streak. It is truly impressive. I have had so many breaks, this seems almost impossible 😂

      I can’t help but look at it. WordPress sends me a daily notification. Hey, you must have quite a few consecutive days of posting, too, Pete.

            Used to, for sure. I turned all that stuff off. But can’t remember exactly what I did. There was a screen to configure notifications.

    Use the scheduling feature. Have a few back up posts in your drafts folder so if you do want some time off, you can use them, and give yourself a breather. I do it all the time!

        If the outcome is good, then I’d say let’s stick with the positive one. 🙂

      I used to schedule my FOWC prompts in advance, but lately have been just managing a day or two ahead.

    I think posting something each day helps to keep people showing up… when your content is so interesting.
