I noticed that by the end of March, I had already beaten the annual total of posts for 2015.
By blogging every day of April I am now within one of 2014's annual total. Only in 2010 have I ever posted every day for a month - when I did it for nine months straight, then tailed off, exhausted, to eight posts in each of October, November and December.
From there it is only another 21 posts to equal 2016's total, so that should be achievable by the end of May, and only a further 16 to achieve 2013's 116 posts by the end of June - with a bit of a head start in hand towards the next target.
The next highest year is 2012 with 162 posts, so I reckon I could be there in another month with enough of a head start, but let's say August to be on the safe side.
Then a further 35 posts takes us to 2011's second highest total (197). I reckon I'll be there by the end of September.
Then it'll be a big final push to get 100 more posts in before the end of the year to equal the highest posting year so far - 2010, with 297. That will be quite a challenge as 2017 didn't get off to the most productive start, but I am making up for lost time now, and if I can keep this up, then who knows. Just keep reading and I'll try to keep writing.
I wish that I knew then what I know now.
