Being able to blog continuously reminds me of those combos in the arcades. You know, you score for continuously hitting the drum within a certain small frame of time based on a tempo. And it usually gets harder as the time progresses.
30 hit combo and it’s not from button spamming!
If we were to port the game mechanisms over to blogging, it would mean at least a post each day until we finally meet with a brain fuse, writer’s block or when ideas just run dry.
Well, who would have thought I was able to post stuffs continuously for slightly more than a week already. And at first my sentiment on blogging was something like “Blogging eh? Ok, hopefully I have at least one thing to share each week.” But so far, the mental truck is still moving! Don’t think I see any black smoke coming from the engine yet.
Now, a combo counter comes to mind. Something like a “This blog has been posting continuously for X days.” I don’t recall seeing such a thing in any blog other than a visitor’s counter. But, it’s probably a bad idea. Once you have those counters, there will always be some maniacs out there wanting to clock up to max for whatever reasons. Well, what better way to fill up those combo meters with a one liner post each day eh?
That being said, I wonder how much longer I’ll last in a combo run. So far, this is the 12th Hit Combo!
