365 Challenge: Day 265 – HUNDRED

Posted on Updated on

Hundred: when there’s only this amount of days left in the 365 Daily Challenge – a countdown must occur

As of tomorrow, we hit the start of the 100 Days Countdown for the 365 Daily Challenge — there’s only one hundred posts left to explore my world… can you believe it’s been that long already? A few interesting things to share today:

  • On Monday, Ryder will kick off the ‘This Is My Truth Now’ 2017 blogger award poll. There will be a very special poll to determine the award winner, as well as giveaway that will be fun and rewarding.
  • I have been blogging for just over 1 year.
  • Today’s post is #980 — we’re getting close to 1000!
  • There have been 14,274 comments.
  • The site has been viewed 79,274 times.
  • There are ~3600 followers.
  • There are 100 posts left for the 365 Daily Challenge
    • 14 Author Alerts
    • 14 Ryder Rants
    • 14 Lists
    • 58 Miscellaneous Posts
      • a new weekly segment on Father Figure
      • a new weekly segment on Watching Glass Shatter
      • what else do you want to read about?

This has been incredibly exciting and I can’t wait to see what happens in our countdown. While I won’t really do anything special until the last 10 days next March, I did want to start getting everyone thinking about what else I should try to achieve before this concludes. Thoughts?

 

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

        You are most welcome!! 🙂 Well…I’m technically eight weeks ahead of the blog. Blog count I am at 227 (discounting the two extra posts after 100 and 200, the introduction and blog awards); but currently I’m at 284…I think. 😬😁 so I think we are pretty close! You’re a lot closer on the blog, though!!

      Ha, thank you! Yes… I’m thinking it might be spiked coffee. Spiked of course with whatever you prefer, whether that’s chocolate, liquor and anything in between. 🙂

      I’m sure I’ll start up some other challenge, but it likely won’t be daily. Weekly sounds better. But I’ll still try to post several times per week. 🙂

    Yay to you! I have only 30 pictures left for my 365 picture project but I started on January 1. I GOT MY COPY OF WATCHING GLASS SHATTER yesterday in the mail. So excited to start it. Since I live out here on the West Coast I love seeing the sights of New York from an up close and personal view so maybe some stories about the neighborhood? I’ll have to go back and try and catch up with the posts you wrote before we connected to see what I’ve missed. March 10 is my birthday. How close is that to your 365th post?

      30 left, wow? That’s fantastic. 1 month. Awesome.

      Thank you so much for buying the book, you are truly a wonderful person. I appreciate it.

      Hmm… a NYC series, that might be a good post. Thanks.

      March 13 is when it started, so March 12 is the end. It will be a fair well and birthday for you! I’m 3/18.

        No wonder we like each other 🙂 March is a wonderful month to be born. My dad was the 13th. I came home from the hospital on that day so I always teased my sisters that I was dad’s favorite since I was his “birthday present.”
