It’s been nearly 2 1/2 years since my last post. I’d warn you that the likelihood of me maintaining a repeatable, identifiable schedule are slim, but I think the years between posts should be warning enough. Here are my excuses, arranged in chronological order for your amusement: a four-hour daily commute; training in various programming languages; family sickness; second daughter was born; no time to watch baseball; and finally no time whatsoever to write a post about baseball.
For those of you that actually remembered the site from the way back, welcome back, and I’m sure you’re wondering why the change. “Don’t you write about baseball,” you’re probably asking yourself. Eh. Not so much.
The site before became something akin to work. There became too many rules. Post regularly. Engage with your potential readers regularly on social media. Develop your brand. Blah, blah, blah. There are so many experts regarding social media, and each offered that one morsel of truth that would carry your site to page hit glory. It all became so phony and nonsensical. A perfect sentiment for the current times.
My last post was about how the Mets should offer Matt an extension. I actually wrote this: “If it were up to me, I’d walk into Boras’ office and hand Harvey an extension for six years and $175M dollars.” Whoa! Maybe the best thing that ever happened to my readers’ braincells was that they no longer read the stupid that I was offering.
The site has changed. I’m not going to write all that much about baseball. I’ll probably write about toys. Those are fun. I like toys. I’ll write about toys, and taking pictures of toys, and learning about how to take pictures of toys.
I hope you stay around to read and check these pictures out. It’s a pretty cool thing to see toys doing all kinds of actiony type things.
