Day 100!

Finally – day 100 in the posting challenge!

(Well, really day 99 out of 100, but as I’ve averaged over a post a day I’m allowing myself to claim it as completed.)

I’m treating it in a suitably low-key sort of way and celebrated by having a tooth extracted. It wasn’t particularly enjoyable, but it could have been worse. Next time I have a celebration I may stick with the traditional cake-based version.

They gave me a form to fill in afterwards, asking how likely I was to recommend them to a family member. It’s difficult to give a useful answer to that, as I’m not likely to recommend that any member of my family spends half an hour in the dentist’s chair with pliers and power tools in their mouth.

So, what have I learned from my 100 days of posting?


I’ve learned that it’s possible to run out of things to say, and that photos of flowers and cute animals are an acceptable substitute. I’ve also learned that you can grow to hate blogging at times, and that setting a target makes you more likely to do things.

However, I knew that.

I suppose the main thing I’ve learned is that it is possible to set myself a long-term writing target and stick to it. That’s not always been the case in the past.

I also need to list subjects for posts and write some in advance.

That, I think, is about it.

Now, what should I do tomorrow?

    I like the idea of a dentist asking a patient who has just had an extraction to recommend them to others. I trust that you answered in a suitable manner involving a number of fingers.
    Well done for hitting the hundred. Could you now perhaps advise the present government on how to achieve targets?

      Posted too soon – regarding government and targets – I doubt that most of them are capable of learning. They are undoubtedly the worst shower of idiots we’ve had in parliament since the 1918 Act abolished inbreeding as a qualification for being an MP.

    You could do what I did. Post for a whole year and for each year day out something significant from personal life or history or interests to be the daily topic. It is surprisingly easy to do.
    Anyway, congratulations on your 100 day project.
