Word Count

I was just poking around some of the stats WordPress accumulates for their blogs. Prior to this post, I’ve published 65131 words since the start of 2018. I thought… ‘Ok. Great… What the hell does that mean?’. So I googled how big books are, typically. It turns out the median word count for books on Amazon is right around 64000, with the example of Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ coming in a few hundred words more than that median and a few hundred below the number I’m currently sitting at.

I guess that’s kinda cool. I’ve written about a book’s worth of blog posts this year. I honestly didn’t realize it was that much. Yeah…

Here’s a link to the result I found.
