I am happy to be celebrating the first anniversary for this blog. In that time, I have published 80 posts, pretty much all of them sharing lots of photos of how I experience the hobby of collecting LEGO. I have posted nearly 600 photos on the blog in the past year. These posts focus mostly on the retail experience of LEGO in stores – which differs greatly from most other LEGO blogs I am a fan of. Many share reviews of sets, LEGO news, and of course: all the cool things that people build with these little bricks.
I love the idea of capturing and archiving the experience of finding LEGO sets in stores. Seeing which sets that are now retired, were once plentiful on the shelves; how different stores display their sets; and what deals I am finding. That, in a few years, we will be able to look back on these photos and see nothing but sets that will be retired. Imagine looking back at 600 images of toy stores from 1978 with Star Wars toys on the shelf; or 1984 with GI Joe, Transformers, He-Man, and the like.
And perhaps I focus on this aspect of the hobby because I have more time to shop for LEGO, than I do to build. 🙂
Besides what you from me on this blog, I engage in conversation on a nearly daily basis on two LEGO communities:
I would like to thank the members of those communities for all that they have shared!
Looking forward to another year!
