How many words have I published?The other day I was thinking about…how many words have I published this year?
The other day I was thinking about…how many words have I published this year?
There are not really any tools / services that calculate how many words I write. I checked! Medium does not even provide analytics like that in their API.
So I figured I’d do something simple math to provide an estimate…
On my daily blog, I publish once per day, every day. That is between 200–1000 words every day. Let’s call it 300 to be on the conservative side.
300 x 365 = 110,000.
There is roughly 550 words on a single spaced page. So it’d be about 200 pages.
I actually write far more than that. You see, I also run a content business where I write between 800–1200 word articles every day. I write roughly two articles a day there.
doing that math…
800*365*2 = 584,000 + 110,000 = 694,000
This is about 1200 pages. Enough for a trilogy!
Of course, it is much harder to write a coherent book…
But imagine writing a trilogy or two each and every year (this is my second year now).
How far would that get you?
