That's All, Folks

About a year and a half ago I started this blog with the intention of ranting about the Dodgers. And I did. For all of one post. In fact, it was less of a rant and more of me predicting how the off-season would go. I did pretty damn good if you were wondering. But I digress...

To be honest, I didn't think this whole blogging thing would last. I had started numerous blogs over the years, all with varying lifespans. I always wanted to write about the Dodgers, but could never find a reason to post consistently. And then I started getting back into cards. 

I started to pick up packs here and there and even a card on eBay from time to time. I posted some of my favorites here on the blog in posts I called 'Card of the Day'. Eventually, I moved on from that and started writing more about the cards, rather than just posting a picture of them with a line or two of how much it cost me. Pretty soon I was pumping out posts daily, running contests, and reading other blogs whenever I had a free moment. But, as it happens to most of us, life got in the way, and now I am stepping back from the hobby.

I'm not sure how long my sabbatical will last. I imagine I won't collect again until at least after college, so like another 4-5 years. And even then, who knows if the desire wills till be there. Hopefully by that time, however, I'll be making so much money, I can just flat out buy Topps (yea, not gonna happen). 

I'll still be checking out blogs from time to time, and I may even pick up a card or two over the next few years, but my time blogging is done. 

That said, I'd just like to thank a few people in this community that have been especially kind to me. Greg, Matthew, Nick, Austin, Andrew, and William, you guys are all exceptionally awesome, and I wish you nothing but the best with your collections going forward. 

Thanks again everyone!
