It’s amazing how 1 year has flown by so quickly.
When I started this blog, I had very little idea as to what direction it would head into and how long it would last. I am a creative guy that likes to write, but getting back into the hobby of collecting baseball cards again was not something I had a lot of knowledge about and was unsure as to what direction to take.
Ultimately I settled in on going back to my days of collecting as a child and attempting to honor some of my favorite players from my youth. For me this was the perfect decision. If I had not chosen this route I have no doubt that this blog would not be ‘alive’ today. The wonderful thing about this hobby is that it offers something unique to each and every person. And for me that was focusing in on the guys I enjoyed watching play or read about playing when I was a kid. Paying special attention to the incredible Cubs like Andre Dawson, Fergie Jenkins, Billy Williams, Mark Grace, and others, I quickly realized that my collecting goals were unique and special to me but that other collectors respected and I enjoyed what I was doing. Adding in other players that captivated my like Rickey Henderson and Dave Winfield only made my collecting goals that much more fun.
So 365 days later, and several player collections complete, I am looking to bring new material to the site. While I have no plans of changing the look and feel of ’30-YOC’, I do plan on adding some new elements to keep the blog fresh. And I have a ton of new ideas for collecting and series’ of posts to bring to you in the near future.
I want to thank everyone who has helped make this a special journey for me. It has been a blast to recapture and share my love of writing and baseball in one place.
I am looking forward to see what lies ahead for ’30-YOC’. I hope you are too!!
