This will be day number 236 in a row that I’ve published a blog post. One hell of a streak. There aren’t many other things that I’ve done every single day, without fail, during that time.
It’s a habit I’m happy to have formed. It keeps me in touch with the product I support everyday. Writing has become easier, which helps with my other hobby of Dungeons & Dragons. It’s also helped me stay connected with my family, who I don’t get to see as often as I’d like. Anything big seems to make its way to the blog soon enough.
But the streak is something I don’t think I can maintain much longer. I don’t do enough interesting things to warrant a post everyday, and I’ve started putting less effort into any one post. That time would be better spent making cooler things less often. That said, I don’t want to fall out of the habit. So whenever the streak finally breaks, I’m going to treat it more as shift than a stop.
I’ll miss that notification everyday though.
