UPDATE: Since I wrote this post I have realized that the total number of posts reported by the Blogger Dashboard includes unpublished drafts. This means that I technically only have 286 published posts, but 302 (now) posts including the unpublished drafts. Oh well. I'll guess I'll have to do another "300th Post" post at some time in the future.
Looking at my Blogger Dashboard reveals that the post just below this one was the 300th post on this blog. Huh. That's a lot.
When I finished my master's degree, I went back and counted up all the words of all the papers I wrote and assignments I completed in order to get a Master's of Divinity. I don't remember the exact word count from all of those writings, but I do recall that the total was over 290,000 words for all of my graduate level writing. A quick Google search revealed that the word count of the average novel these days is about 70,000 words. That means that in seminary I wrote the equivalent of 4 novels (in number of words, not quality or style of writing, that is). That's a lot too. I wonder how many "novels worth" of words I've written on this blog so far?
Lord willing, there will be another 300, or 301 posts to come.
