Today I was planning to WOW! you all with my stunning (and obligatory) Year End Review. But, well, I decided to wait another day on that. I did, however, watch a lot of college football with the Puddinpop and partook of the traditional New Year’s Day saurkraut and pork dinner at Mom’s. I also made a couple of minor modifications to the blog page. Plus, laundry. So, you know, it was a full day.
Yes, it is all pretty underwhelming.
I didn’t want to leave you with nothing, though, so I figured this is as good a time as any to report on the final Puddintopia word counts for the year. Surprisingly, I ended up spitting out 156,475 total words in 2010, and the average post was 708 words in length. Considering that I was hoping to hit 120k by the end of January this year, I guess I didn’t do so poorly. So, yay me!
I believe I definitely outdid that room full of monkeys with typewriters last year, even if I do say so myself.
Tonight will be the last time I bother mentioning this particular topic going forward. Last year, this was all an exercise to prove that I could write some daily…stuff…if I set my mind to it. The point has been proven, the goal attained. Thus, no more of this counting business, since I can’t imagine most of you care. I admitted yesterday that Puddintopia has become a blog proper. Henceforth I will simply carry on, while setting bigger, different writing goals for myself. And trust me, I’ve got plenty.
Maybe I’ll bore you with all that tomorrow.
Then again, I might spend tomorrow complaining about how I hate athletic shoe manufacturing. You just never know.
