And now, the end is near…

Ladies and gentlespoons, we are approaching the end of the year and – as ever – I’m going to be craving some (or more) downtime. Part of this plan involves not committing to posting a blog post every day, but at the same time, not allowing my record of – ooh, several years now – of daily posts to be broken.

That’s why I’ve written blog posts ahead of time to carry us all through the festive season and into the New Year. That’s not to say that these won’t be supplemented with actual “live” posts should I feel the need or want to share something, but it is to say that I don’t have to do anything if I don’t want to. After around 386 posts and 75,677 words this year, I think I deserve a couple of weeks off.

For the record, on December 31st, this blog will have published 1,192,954 words in 4,924 posts.

Including the ones you’re reading right now.
