The Daily Backlog | Day 30

30 Days of Backloggin’

Good morning backloggers!! And happy 30 days of The Daily Backlog! I honestly can’t believe we made it this far and I want to thank all of you for sticking with me through all my shenanigans!! What started as a “Hey, let’s try this and see what happens” has turned into something I look forward to doing every single day!

So far we’ve cut down 3 games on our backlog with 2 more soon to come. That and I think we’ve probably covered close to 10 games total which is super exciting and I’m really looking forward to seeing what games we’ll be playing in the months to come! And for those of us who are nerd-ically inclined and like snooping through stats and number here are some maths on the progress of The Daily Backlog so far:

Of the 30 posts I’ve created to date, they contain a total of 25633 words with an average of 855 words per post! I think my english teacher in high school would be dumbfounded that that was even possible! You see, I’ve never been the literary type and I’ve always considered myself an analytical person with a hint of creativity (minus the whole writing thing). So math, science and art were my jam. Writing 1000 words let alone 25000 at any point would be a herculean feat when I was younger. Trying to make me write anything for that matter was like squeezing blood from a turnip.

But we did it! 25000 words and 30 posts later we did it. And I want to again thank all of you for supporting me. I especially want to thank my wife for putting up with me and helping me edit these things – I love you hunny!! I think she may have a few things appearing on the website in the very near future so definitely stay tuned for that!!

And finally I want to thank some specific people from Twitter and beyond for just being awesome and supporting me from the start:
