As much as I thought that words would fail me at some point, I always found another way of writing things. From my last experiment on post 99 to this one to another one that I conceptualized while researching on wikipedia, I am glad that it is over, in a way.
Because posting 30 posts in three days is a bit much, even for me. I find a nice balance in my posting when I post about 3 to 6 posts a day. That gives a nice variety and gives me time to mull over things. Before I would have thought that those numbers would have been a bit too much, but I find that it is simply a way of seeing things.
Before, I had very long posts. Sometimes close to 6000 words, at times. All in one post. (Remember the whole meta-post idea?)
Now, I prefer posts that are a bit more on topic and lead to a conclusion, instead of going on and on. I have thought about splitting up those long meta-posts but since there are only a dozen or so, I don’t think that it would be worth the effort.
So that is a 100 posts in one month on The Memoirs. That is a lot, but when you break down the numbers, it’s just a little bit more than 3.33 posts a day, which isn’t so much. The challenge was hard because I only had a few weeks to come up with a lot of posts (I don’t remember if it was 5.69 posts a day or two weeks at this point).
I hope that you have enjoyed it.
I don’t plan on doing this again anytime soon, unless their is a purpose, because it was strange. Sometimes posting too much will dilute the essence of the posts themselves. But then, since I am not pushing a product or reviewing anything significant, it becomes an exercise in effort, style and art.
More than anything, I do agree totally with Jessica that some blogging is definitely art.
At one point I was at a zen like stance on this whole idea.
Once there are no more words, what is left?
No more words are coming out of my mouth, do I still exist?
Yes, and sometimes silence is golden.
The only other goal that I have right now is to post 1000 posts for the 24th of May 2007, the one year anniversary of this blog.
