Okay … Let’s Do This


I can’t believe that it is already the 4th day of the new year and I have only written two blog posts.  For those of you who like to do complex math problems as a hobby, that is only a half a post per day.  Or, for those of you who like pointless acronyms, 0.5 PPD (Posts Per Day) .

At this rate, I will only have 182.125 blog posts completed at the end of 2018.   That would be tragic!  Of course, that is a significant improvement over 2017, but I’m not one to let math get in the way of my emotional tirades.

Now, my more astute readers are now saying, “But Biff … this is the 3rd blog post of 2018, so that means your PPD is now 0.75, which means that by the end of 2018 you will have written 273.1875 blog posts.

Really … who says things like that?

But you make a good point.  I would be quite happy with 273.1875 blog posts within a year.  However, I am a little curious as to what that 0.1875 post would look like.  That is three sixteenths of a blog post and I’m guessing it is one of those posts wherein in hit the “Publish” button accidentally before I’ve finished writing it, but I’m too lazy to go back into it and finish it.

If ever there was a time that I should not click the “Publish” button, it is right now for this very post … but I’ve got my PPD to think about.


  1. LOL. Glad I’m not the only one to publish before a post was ready. It even took me a while to figure out how to schedule a post! I know my PPD is going to be about .2 for 2018. (If that’s 2 per week and a half or so) My math isn’t so good either.

    • Hi Candice! No, I have “prematurely published” more than once. And a few times I have even THOUGHT I’d published when I merely saved it as a draft.

      And then there is the dreaded and mysterious “one tag too many” feature of WP that makes you THINK you’ve published, but it doesn’t show up in any of the tag streams. I have actually had to delete a post and then re-publish it just so it would show up. Yay! Fun!

      And 2 posts per 1.5 weeks sounds fine to me. I look forward to reading them! It is quality, not quantity that matters. And even more than that, it is just the sheer pleasure of writing and sharing our work with others that really matters.

      Happy blogging!
