I had a conversation this evening that started me down memory lane a little bit … thinking of my days grinding away in the newsroom.
I remember when I sat down, put pen to paper and figured out that I had written 5,000 newspaper stories. … That was a few years ago. I’m probably somewhere between 7,500 and 8,000 now.
So then I went and checked my HCN Facebook posts. I have an IFTT.com recipe set up to dump all my posts into an Evernote notebook for me. … Since late February 2013 I have put up more than 8,100 posts on HCN.
I couldn’t stop there, so I did some more math and I conservatively estimate I have written somewhere in the neighborhood of 2.5 million words for publication in my journalism career.
Going to bed folks … all of a sudden I’m pretty tired.
