A Big Thank you to you all.

This is thank you post.

3 years ago Oct 13 I sat down for the first time and started this blog.

First off let me say that I am not a writer.  I never claimed to be.  I'm a biologist by trade and feel extremely lucky to have been working in the field I went to college for, for most of my adult life.  I feel blessed I work in an organization of like minded people that enjoy what they do and like coming to work everyday.  My job isn't glamorous, but it's fun, challenging, gets me outside during the best months in Alaska, and pays me a living wage.  I'm also blessed to able to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on earth and that I found a woman up here, against all odds, that can put up with me, most of the time.

And while I don't consider myself a writer, I write.  And I want to thank the people who get me hundreds of hits a day   Honestly when I started this blog way back in October of 2009 I'm not sure what I was trying to do.  Take a look back at a few of those early posts. Yikes.  But slowly I found my voice and over those last 3 years or so I like to think I've gotten better at this. At least a little.  I still rush posts out with out rereading them and cringe at my syntax and then go back and fix stuff I should have done in the first place.  Over that time I started some new blogs, Lord knows why.  But a few were player collection focused, some team focused, one I made just to rant on and then got tired of ranting.  They probably don't all need to exist, but I can't bring myself to delete them.

Over the course of my blogging career I've seen blogs come and go.  And I have no plans on quitting anytime soon.  Even if I decided to quite actively collecting cards, or minifigures or anything else I think I would still want to write.  Over the last 3 years I've composed over 600 posts and garnered over 100 people that felt it worthy enough to follow the blog and fellow card bloggers that added me to their reading list and blog rolls.  Thank you to you all.  And if you have a blog I might like and don't see it on my blog roll let me know.  I'm finding new stuff all the time and adding it and I don't mind adding one more.

So again thanks to everyone who reads and those who read and comment.  We all like comments here at crack headquarters.
