Celebrating The Blog Today. Happy 6th Birthday To ’30-Year Old Cardboard’

Celebrating The Blog Today.  Happy 6th Birthday To ’30-Year Old Cardboard’

Yep, the blog has reached another milestone – 6 years!

What started as a journey in 2008 that I did not know where it would go or how it would get anywhere, ’30-Year Old Cardboard’ has become a part of my life, a very enjoyable part.

Since August 8, 2008, this blog has been chugging right along.  No Baby steps with this thing – right to walking, jogging, running, and now a marathon.

In existence for 2,191 days, I have missed just one day since 8/8/2008 in which I did not submit a post for your enjoyment.  And that missed day came during the first two weeks – so, you could say that I have a 5 year, 11 month streak going.  Look out Cal, I am coming for you!!!

In all seriousness, this blog the world to me.  It has allowed me the opportunity to enjoy the baseball stars I enjoyed during my youth while also getting the opportunity to learn even more about the great history of the game and engrossing myself in the action of today.

I have met some great people over the years as a result of ’30-YOC’ – some I have not talked to in years, others I speak with on occasion, and some I talk to almost daily.  And I love all of it.

From me to you and from you to me, Happy Birthday ’30-Year Old Cardboard’.  I may run the blog, but this blog is for all of us.

Thanks for the great times and memories.  I look forward to seeing what the future holds for all of us!!
