Happy 4th Birthday to The Other World!
From the first post until today (factoring in a leap year), it has now been exactly 4 years ago today that I started this blog. Who would have ever thunk it?
There has been times when I wanted to comment on everything and stay quiet about everything. But most importantly, there hasn't been a time where I haven't found it fun.
Some blog stats: 506 published posts, over 1500 scans, and at least one reference to cookies.
It's been fun being in this virtual community with all the like and unlike minded collectors and baseball fans out there. We each bring a little richness to the fullness of the conversation that is this topsy-turvy world based on rectangles.
I'd like to thank everyone who's ever commented, everyone who's ever made me laugh or nod my head or shake my head with a post, all of my trade partners, all the people who ran group breaks and participated in mine, anyone who opened more packs than me or less, and also the two small people on my shoulders who whisper opposite ideas in my head and won't let me rest without spinning.....
But seriously, I have a good time expressing myself in prose and hope that you come back for more (just like Hamels came back for 6 years to the Phillies).
We all know that baseball and card collecting isn't an addiction; it's an encompassing lifestyle...
Thanks for reading.
and get ready for the contest next week.....
