I read as much of what's written as I can. There are scores of great writers out there with a passion for what they collect, and it shows in their writing. Admittedly, there are some blogs that I prefer over others and will go to them first each and every time I log on. I admonish myself each and every time I see a post for a blog that I haven't read in a few days by saying "you need to read some of his/her posts".
There are times when I don't see somebody post for a few days and I say to myself "I hope they are OK".
There are posts that make me laugh. There are posts that make me think. There are posts that make me post. I do my best when the latter happens to give credit where credit is due.
I'll be damned if I can find one or two other bloggers out there that would even give a damn about the Blue Jays, or the myriad of Chrome colored parallels that I was able to obtain in a trade.
|Don't rub your eyes, it's not a Chrome card...|
I'll also be damned if I could find another handful of bloggers out there that give two shits about my beloved Maple Leafs, or the latest relic that I was lucky enough to score for a couple of dollars at a card show...
I don't cheer for the Cubs, Dodgers, Astros, Wolverines, Braves, Royals, Phillies, Cardinals, Canadiens, Penguins or the countless other teams that other bloggers write about. They are not my cup of tea.
I know what you're saying...."what the hell is your point Robert??" I'm getting to that...
I've read lately on posts that people are worried about other people reading their blogs, and wondering about what they might be saying and if anyone cares.
I say to this only one thing........ write what you want dammit!!
If you see that my blog has hit your website, there's a 99.99% chance that I've read your post right to the very end. Whether it be a score you pulled from a pack, an opinion about a current topic in the sports world, or a trade post, you can be sure of one thing.
I'm interested, and reading all the way through. Why?
Because there are a lot of you reading my stuff, and enjoying it. So I owe it to you. I owe you the courtesy of reading what you have to say, no matter how far off topic for me it may be. I may pull up one little nugget of information about what you, or someone you've dealt with enjoys, collects or even detests, and that little nugget gets stored in the bigger nugget I call a brain.
Experiences and memories are what make this hobby great. Each of us writing about one of our experiences just may bring back a memory for someone else that they may have buried. It just may put a smile on someone's face...you never know.
Write what you want dammit...you don't know who you're going to touch today.
As always...thank you for reading, Robert
