I am considering dropping the day count numbering to the main body of the posts rather than having them so prominently in the title. I suspect this will aid in my gaining more SEO respect as well as conserving the space available on this Blogrush widget I’ve added. Since it’s my blog and my DB I can always get into the body with a query. If I wanted to somehow recreate the day count part of the title for some future reason.
It makes this whole thing look like a project. I am not going to deliver it to a customer once I hit day 1001. It won’t get packaged and sold–or shelved.
A post each day is evidence enough that I’ve written as I vowed. The numbers are really for me to track where I am. Why publish them?
Word count has been bugging me too. But I think it should bug me since it’s purpose is to goad. I’ll keep it around for a bit.
Also, we need a weekly limit on these crap maintenance posts.
