All of a sudden I’m tired

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.

Working in the newsroom, I had a front row seat as the internet just about killed newspapers. I knew I had to either evolve or risk becoming insignificant. So I changed. I learned how to build websites and blogs, and I used social media to go to my readers. Now the goal is to use what I've learned to honor God and serve my community.
