Episode 8: Why am I numbering these?So, why am I bothering to number my blog posts sequentially? Several reasons.
1) If you recall, I'm trying to get into the habit of posting every day. Numbering 'em is part of my effort to cement the habit in my brain, kinda like counting breaths 1 to 4 repeatedly to meditate.
2) I'll have an excuse to celebrate every time I get to one of those big round numbers that we 10-fingered hominids seem so excited about. Hey! Post number 10 is right around the corner! We shall have to throw a little party.
3) Ease of reference. A year from now, you'll be able to reference this post by specifying "blog post #8", instead of having to vaguely refer to "that one time when Jeff Dee wrote that crazy shit about why he was numbering these things".
4) I can't help myself, because I am extremely anal. I mean good grief, I even numbered the reasons why I number my blog posts! What the hell is wrong with me?
