Blogcessive compulsive post #100

Posted by James McPherson on September 7, 2008

Back on Aug. 29 I said my posting frequency was probably about to decrease because I was starting school again, among other things. I then proceeded to post at least one entry per day for the next six consecutive days, giving me an overall streak of 13 days in a row.  This one makes 100 posts since I started the blog on April 22, or an average of almost exactly five per week (despite two multi-day trips out of town).

Obviously I enjoy it. But now that the political conventions are over, maybe I can stick to my previous plan. My wife will undoubtedly appreciate it. And maybe I can’t. There’s just so much interesting, stupid stuff involved with presidential campaigns. Thanks in part to the Internet, this one promises elements of the bizarre never previously seen.

Please keep checking back, and if there’s nothing new, check out the archives or links. The most popular posts can be found at the bottom right of this page, or just skim back and look for headlines that interest you. And thank you for reading, especially those of you who make the extra effort to provide your own perspectives via comments.
