I kind of knew that this was creeping up on me.

This will be the 8,003rd published post. Over the years — around the last 5 years — I have probably deleted around 60 posts. So, this number only reflects what is currently published — as opposed to a running count.

The very first post on this blog was made in June 2009. So, it is in theory, 8-years old. If we go with that, that is 1,000 posts a year, 2.7 a year.

In reality I did not start using this blog, in earnest, till the Summer 2012 London Olympics. That says it is close to 5-years old. That would give us ~1,500 posts/year, 4 a day.

Here is a statistic that blew my mind. IF you only do one post a day, it will take you 21.9 years to publish 8,000 posts!

It is also sobering that there were periods during this time when I maintained multiple blogs — the now defunct ‘popes-and-papacy‘ key among them.

1,209,034 HITS as I write this.

That would mean that on average each of my posts got 151 views. Well, that is NOT the case. That is just statistics.

But, all said, I can live with 8,000+ posts and 1,209,034 HITS.

P.S., When I was at around 7,000 posts, I was told by WordPress that this was exceptionally high for a single-user blog — i.e., 99.99% of those posts were written by I.
