I’ve got a post for every day of the past year, plus some. For the most part, those have been individually posted every single day (whew), but I actually missed a handful of days – usually right after some travel. I think I missed 4. In those cases, I created a post and back-dated it to be on the “right” day.
Which, yes, I get that that is cheating. I’m ok with that!
My app doesn’t agree, and currently think I’m on day 40, however (well, this post will be day 41).
You may be thinking to yourself … wait, what is this “streak” notification? It’s a feature we’re testing and is right now only available to Automatticians. Fortunately, you can see the Insights graphic on that tab of your stats, which shows you a better visual, anyway!
The other day when I posted, I got the following notification – I’ve reached a leet amount of posts. That is a lot of posts. But again, it’s sort of cheating. I imported my old blog into Revelry Reverie, so while all the posts are my posts, they’re not all original to this blog. Ah well.
I primarily post through the mobile app (I use Android, and I’m on the alpha version of the app), and over the course of the past year, it has gotten increasingly smooth. Every few months we are far ahead of where we were previously, and I appreciate it more and more with each passing post. I mean day! With each passing day. When I think about how I’ve been easily able to streamline my blogs, I’m really proud of what WordPress.com is capable of, and what features are available for people who want to be present online either continually or only once in awhile. The less friction, the easier it is to post. The less learning curve, the easier to leave it and come back after a break. And it’s also important to me to have all my content at home in one place. It goes to Twitter and Facebook, but I don’t have to worry about my content being in a bunch of separate places.
Here’s to the next year’s worth of posts.
