Three years


Technically, tomorrow is this blog's three-year anniversary.

Since Sundays are reserved for Frankenset Days, though, I thought I'd acknowledge the milestone today.

It's almost hard to believe that I've been doing this for three years. Writing goofy thoughts about goofy baseball cards. It seems like I just polished off my first post last week.

Then again, when I think about how far my collection has come with the support of all you great bloggers out there, it feels like I've been a part of the blogosphere for decades already. Maybe three years isn't such a long time. I'm fully ready for three more.

I'd just like to thank all the awesome people who have taken the time to read this silly blog over the course of its history. Whether you just found "Dime Boxes" yesterday or have been reading since the beginning, I'm glad you've come along for the ride. It's been a blast.

I haven't met most of you (yet), but I consider all of you my friends.

Thank you.

This might sound a little cliche, but I remember when you were the new kid on the blog. It really does seem like yesterday. Everyday there is something new to remind me of my rapidly advancing age. Dimebox Nick becoming a veteran blogger is just the latest. So thank you for making me feel just a little bit older.

Seriously congratulations and hopefully we will have you around for many more years to come.

Ditto what Hiflew said.
Man, time passes quickly.
In a year that saw a couple of great blogs close up shop (JBF and 30-year Cardboard) and my blogging decrease here...I'm extra appreciative of the young guns such as yourself keeping things rolling.
A toast to Dime Box Nick !! Huzzahhhh!!

I've been with you since nearly the beginning. I've always loved your enthusiasm for our hobby and I'm still amazed at the great cards you come up with. If someone looks at your collection and doesn't find something to like there's something wrong with them. Congrats on three years and counting.

Congrats! I have a lot of reading to do! I truly appreciate how fresh your writing is. Your humor is an added bonus!

There's no way in the world I could have written a blog, let alone collected baseball cards, when I was in college, so that alone should tell you what a great job you're doing.

Congrats Nick. You were one of the first blogs I came upon. Still one of my first reads

Congrats on three years of blogging. Yours is one of the most enjoyable blogs to read, and I'm glad there is another collector out there who appreciates oddballs with the gusto that you do.

I've only known your blog for 5 months, and I'm now one of the new kids (hopefully) who looks up to you.
Even though I'm soooo much older than you are ! keep it rollin'
