# 1000th consecutive posting day

**TL;DR**

Today marks the 1000th day of consecutive posting.

I probably talked too much about the blog itself in the blog, but today itâ€™s
the 1000th consecutive day that Iâ€™m posting *something*.

It makes me happy to have reached this goalâ€¦ *without too much
sh*tposting, I hope!*

As a matter of fact, as Iâ€™ve posted *twice* on the January 1st this year,
this is the 1001th consecutive post. I was initially planning on posting
every day, though, so even though the 1000th consecutive post was yesterday,
I think today is celebration day.

At this point, Iâ€™ll probably truly reconsider posting every day, as itâ€™s become somehow taxing and I suspect that it took time from a lot of other things I should have done instead of looking for something to write about, like e.g. drawing or exercising. So Iâ€™ll aim for a different post scheduling, hoping that the gaps will not make me forget about it.

Even though, admittedly, Iâ€™ll probably aim to reach 1024 consecutive days first, because 1000 brought me to the fourth decimal digit, and 1024 will bring me to the 11th binary digit! Soâ€¦ youâ€™ll have to endure this daily tax a bit more I guess.

Now you might be wondering why this post is tagged `#rakulang`

. Well, it
made me very easy to tell when the 1000th consecutive posting day would be,
considering that the streak started on `2020-06-20`

(which counts as 1, of
course, hence the `-1`

in the following one-liner):

```
$ raku -e 'put Date.new("2020-06-20") + 1000 - 1'
2023-03-16
```

Stay safe folks!
