Hundreds & Hundreds & Hundreds

800800, to be exact.

Yes, this is the 800th blog post from the Buller Back Porch. Sounds impressive until you realize that’s 800 posts over 11 years. So, it’s not like that’s 800 posts in a row, or even in the last year. Things got off to a slow start back in 2011. I didn’t post at all in 2012.

Still, it does represent an amazing accumulation of the results of a maintaining a daily practice. Oh, I’m not claiming that the blogging has been daily. No, I’m more specifically talking about my daily practice of a morning freewrite. But that often serves not only as a warm-up exercise for brain and fingers, but it often gives me a chance to try out some ideas for the blog and maybe even some prose I can use to springboard into writing the “real thing” over here.

I do share some of the credit with two “co-bloggers”: my grandfather, G.M.C. Massey, and my cousin, Will T. Massey. Granddad left reams of manuscript pages compiling his memoirs at age 80, and I’ve shared a lot of clippings from those. Will is a prolific sing-er-songwriter, so I’ve devoted a lot of posts to sharing lyrics & music for many of his songs, both recorded/released and some unpublished songs as well.

Well, that’s enough self-congratulation for one post.
Onward to 900…1,000…and beyond!
