The Push to 1,000 Consecutive Posts
22 days to go. It's in my sights now. That's one thousand consecutive daily posts, an important milestone in my life as a writer, something few bloggers ever achieve. As important as it is to me, it's really nothing more than the first mile in my life's marathon. I feel like I'm getting my running legs now.
Any marathoner will tell you the most difficult miles are the last ones. I can relate. In the final portion of this first marathon, I've been on two lengthy road trips, lived in a friend's home, and stayed in places with no computer or Internet access. Some blog stories were written in hotel lobbies. There are some bugs in the blogger software preventing scheduled blogs from launching at 8:08 Pacific Time. I stumble yet keep getting back on my feet. I feel exhilarated. And it's only the last mile of the first marathon. I will never stop running until my heart stops beating.
Thank you for your support. I have so much to share with you. This is day four at the local McDonald's. The next stop is the local library to add some more stories and research the history of my new hometown. Time to sign off. If you would like to share something in your life that you are committed to as a long-term project, please add your comments below. See you tomorrow.
