This blog is somewhat of an experiment. I wish to chronicle what 10,000 consecutive days would look like for an average human being. I think it would be interesting to see how a person changes over such a long interval of time.
10,000 days is approximately 27.25 years. Given that I started blogging on May 1, 2006, my 10,000th post will be on the far-off date of September 15, 2033. Whether or not WordPress (or the internet…or myself…or any of us) will still be around on that date, I’m not sure. But I will do my best to complete my daily log up until that point in time.
Is there something special or remarkable about me that makes my daily ramblings worth recording for more than a quarter of a century? No. But I think that’s what makes this experiment interesting. I hope to demonstrate that even your most average person can experience a surprising variety of fascinating things over such a span of time.
So if this sounds at all interesting to you, please feel free to follow me on my blog-chronicled journey. I can’t promise you that something novel or interesting will be produced every day, but I can at least promise you that every once and awhile I’ll post something that’s pretty interesting that may help you gain some insight as to how a single person can change over the course of 27 years.
I welcome comments, suggestions, and criticisms. I also welcome M&Ms, but they’re a bit difficult to transfer via internet.
