Day 7️⃣9️⃣ of this “experimental” blog. 7️⃣9️⃣ days, 7️⃣9️⃣ words. If I ran this blog for one full year from the date of its inception, August 18, 2021, then I would have a blog post of 3️⃣6️⃣5️⃣ words. A 3️⃣6️⃣5️⃣ blog post is quite impressive, to be sure. My one year anniversary post would be filled with remembrances of my one year journey in the world of blogging. To borrow a quote from the Carpenters, “I’ve only just begun.”
Day 7️⃣8️⃣ of this blogging experiment. I said this blog is not an “advice blog,” but let me give you sonething you can use: I consider blogging a chance to get published during the 2️⃣1️⃣ st Century. This is really a revolutionary tool that is as big as the Guttenberg Press in terms of disseminating information and ideas. Here are a few ideas you may want to ponder. Writer’s block is real. Ideas to write about are everywhere.
Today marks a grim milestone in the three year war on the coronovirus virus known as COVID-19. Worldmeters.info has just calculated five million souls worldwide have died as result of COVID-19 or its complications. 5️⃣ million is just a fraction of those who parished in the 1️⃣9️⃣1️⃣8️⃣ worldwide flu, yet the COVID-19 epidemic of the 2️⃣1️⃣st Century is is far from complete. More people need to take this scourge far more seriously.
Donald Trump is spewing his lies again. I don’t think you want to hear his grievances about how the election that he lost by over 7️⃣ MILLION popular votes and 7️⃣4️⃣ electoral votes was “rigged.” Trump wrote a letter published in The Wall Street Journal, listing a litany of complaints, grievances, conspiracy theories, and blatant lies. No other former president has ever done such a thing. Trump has not furnished any evidence to support his claims.
Day 7️⃣5️⃣, and I’m not even considering for one minute of retiring this blog. I repeat the “experimental” nature of this blog; it is a blog that increases with one word per day. It will end when I just get tired of writing it. I also sarcastically “complain” that as my blog posts are limited to the number of days of the blog, I really can’t complete a concept before my world limit is reached.
As this blog experiment progresses I am getting to the point where I can begin to write some blog posts of considerable length. In most blogs, podcasts, internet articles, or You Tube videos the length of each posting is the same; their length never varies. This blog varies: each blog post increases by one word every day. That was the very premise of the “grand experiment” from the start. Thanks for reading and following.
News items are continuously being created; or news is just continuous. The name of this blog is “News Daily,” but I have really not been reporting news items lately. Should I change the title of this blog to “My Blog?” Yeah, that would be an original title, wouldn’t it? It’s like naming a pet dalmatian “Spot.” “My Blog” doesn’t really “do anything” for me. “News Daily” doesn’t either, if “news” isn’t getting covered.
I don’t wan’t to make this blog a “pure American political blog,” or a blog solely focused on American politics. There are readers from every corner of the globe. What does a bloke in Madagascar care about the election of the president of the United States, or a race for governor in the state of Virginia❓ That being said, I was born, raised, and still live in the United States of America.
This is a blog of “many things.” Essentially it is a “personal blog” in the truest sense. I don’t give “advice.” But there may be things you can gleen just by reading it. I’m not “selling,” or “promoting” anything (except this blog, which is absolutely free, and has no membership or annual fees, “pay portals,” or passwords.) I hope you enjoy my “musings,” even if I have no point to make.
The iconic Broadway musical “The Phantom of the Opera” has played on Broadway for 3️⃣3️⃣ years, and has had 1️⃣3️⃣,3️⃣7️⃣0️⃣ performances. “Phantom” started on Broadway in 1️⃣9️⃣8️⃣8️⃣, ten years before the first blog was created in 1️⃣9️⃣9️⃣8️⃣. The blog you are currently reading started just 7️⃣0️⃣ days ago. If I published a blog post every day it would take 1️⃣3️⃣,3️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ days to reach the point where the Phantom is today.
