Good Friday to all, hope that you all are ready for the weekend, I know I am! Today we have part 4 of my little mini series about the aspects of blogging I enjoy, and that would be the trades I have completed.
I've completed 24 trades so far, and every one was a pleasure. Every blogger or reader I've dealt with has been amazing, and some of them were very generous. Take a look at my Blue Jays list for example. I had the modest goal of hitting 250 unique cards by the Christmas holidays. Not only has that goal been surpassed, it's been destroyed. 700+ now, probably be close to 800 by the end of the month.
I've sent people a handful of cards, and received a box full back. This just blows my mind. I've also completed two sets, and I am a lot closer on a few others as well. Being involved & surrounded with all this generosity inspires me, makes me believe in the concept of paying it forward. I've tried to send a few cards here and there to bloggers that have been good to me, but I still feel like I'm in debt to some of you out there. There are also some that I read on a daily basis, but have unfortunately have not had the good fortune of trading/emailing with you. Hopefully that day will come soon.
Forget the cards for a minute, I've started some great relationships (card wise, don't get any ideas here...) with other bloggers out there. I've had some good back and forth via email with a couple of bloggers that are great. It's always great to get to know someone on a little more of a personal level, especially when their hobby is the same as yours.
Plus, trading gets you some great cards....
As always, thanks for reading, Robert (28 days)
