Resolution Update XXX

I did well with my resolutions but not much else:

1. Blogging. Goal:  300 posts for the year. What I did: For day 204 of 2015, I needed 167.67 blog posts to be on track but this is 221.

2. Writing. Goal:  100,000 words for the year. What I have: Not much but still ahead–61,756 words needing 55,890.41. On the bright side, I got paid for a story and a poem yesterday. If I did that every day, I’d be in good shape.
