Um… Speeding violations! Sporting events! Galas! Plane travel!
My current blog winning streak is longer than 334 days. This is not just the fact that I am currently 334/334 (after publishing this post well before midnight) on M.M.X.I.V. Indeed, in 2013, I posted consecutive posts on the 30th and 31st of December, which means that my current posting streak is at 336 days.
If I were to quit at the end of the year with a streak of 367 posts (all 365 days of M.M.X.I.V. plus two days in 2013), this would be somewhat unsatisfying. A comment from W.S. Marble a couple of days ago was one impetus for me to continue the daily posting for at least a little while, and the Daily Prompt today was another. After all, I would much rather end this streak on a perfect square or a multiple of 9.
In fact, after reviewing my post from my 8888th day, it suggests the streak that I want to shoot for.
My mission, should I choose to accept it: 441 consecutive days of blog posts!
Why? Well, 441 is a perfect square, and is equal to 21^2. Given that 21 was perhaps The Number that inspired this blog in the first place (in the sense that it was my count-off in Israel), it is only fitting that I attempt to extend my posting streak from 365 to 441.
So, do I call the 86 posts that are outside of M.M.X.I.V. a bonus round? Stoppage time? A modified mission? Something else? Help me out here 🙂
Today is the three-hundred and thirty-fourth day of M.M.X.I.V. That makes forty-seven weeks and five days.
Today is the three-hundred and thirty-sixth day of the Posting Streak. The mission is to complete one hundred and five (105) days of posts.
