I just double checked my archives, and according to them, I've only done 176 posts.
Yet my dashboard says I'm sitting right on 196 posts - and this one makes 197.
So who's right?
I checked that there were no "draft" posts just sitting there, looking like I had been busier than I actually have been, but I still can't figure it out.
If you go back and edit a past post, or add something to it later on, do they count that as an actual additional post, even though it's a post that's already been counted before?
Theoretically, if you edit one post 9 times, does it automatically become listed as 10 separate postings?
Oh my... My poor head is spinning.. and it's just too early in the morning for my brain to be thinking deep thoughts. Sadly, I use that excuse - or excuses just like it - throughout the entire day.
I'm a pitiful person that way.
So what do I do? Who do I listen to?
I think in all fairness, I'm going to assume that the 176 posts is the correct figure.
As much as I hate, hate, hate to go with the archives - because I'm all hyped up and excited at being so close to 200 - I think it's the right thing to do. I'm willing to concede that maybe they know a little more than I do.
So... rather than hit the big 200 in the next few days like I though I would, it's going to take me another few weeks to reach the actual milestone.
I know you'll be disappointed at having to wait for the giveaway and all... because you're all excited and restless and almost sleepless at the mere thought of winning some totally inane and useless crap from Tatersmama.
But I'm afraid that you'll just have to straighten your big girl panties, square your shoulders, wipe your eyes and firm your quivering chins... and simply "buck up", boys and girls!
The big 200 will come... it will just come a little later than I thought.
