This is my 343rd post. Some have been good, some lame, some pointless. All-in-all I'm happy with my rookie season.
I have learned much.
First, it takes a lot of time each day to blog.
Second, blogging about sports, with a focus on sports cards is fun as hell.
Third, I can do this. I'm not a professional writer by any means. I surely won't win a Gummie for my innovative posts. But, I can come up with interesting topics and write about them.
Fourth, I can use my scanner in conjunction with Picasa much more effectively now.
Fifth, I use the blog roll on my blog as a way to learn about the hobby. There are so many awesome bloggers out there now. Some guys crack me up, some guys show off magnificent cards I can only dream of owning, some guys keep me informed on the latest hobby news, some expose cheaters/scammers. We all have our niches, and they're all valuable.
Thanks to everyone that has visited my little blog over the past year. I wouldn't do this if not for the readers.
I'm going to try and build the 2009 SP Authentic Sign of the Times Auto set. The on-card auto's are great. The backs of the cards have a black and white head shot. 33 cards is not to crazy for a mostly baseball card guy.
If you've got any of these, let me know, we can work out a deal.
Oh yeah! Blogging is a good way to work trades.
