I started this here blog a little more than a year ago now, and I named it with a play on a throwaway Simpsons reference and one of my favorite (at that time) Tigers. While that might have given readers the impression that it would mainly be a baseball-related blog, that first week or so I posted the results of a five-box break, and four of those were football. I also didn't take very long to make clear my love of all things Michigan sports.
Although I've been collecting for roughly the last 15 years (on again/off again, though), I really put it into high gear around the time I started this blog, and really, that was the point I shifted my collecting focus from baseball to my Michigan PC, which has grown by leaps and bounds, to my great satisfaction. However, with the exception of what I think is a small group of you, I don't think this is a subject that interests most of my audience.
Because of that, I'm considering trying to return the focus of TMG to general collecting topics, MLB and the Tigers (my main baseball PC focus). To do so, I might spin off a new blog that focuses on Michigan--generally hobby-related stuff, but occasionally discussions about team goings-on and the like, kind of like some of the content I post here that isn't necessarily card-related. My intention would be to continue highlighting my Michigan PC and trade for more stuff while also bringing relevant Michigan sports items to interested collectors/readers. I'm also somewhat interested in potentially having a couple team members writing for this blog if they'd be interested, since I've spoken with a few fellow Michigan fans and collectors in the blogosphere and I'd be interested in seeing what they'd have to add to such a project.
Having seen how some of you whose blogs I follow seem to handle a couple blogs reasonably well, I feel like I could accomplish enough on these two blogs to provide and acceptable amount of content to keep both worthwhile (and possibly even beyond that with a couple team members in the case of the Michigan-centric blog). SO, I ask each of you who made it this far:
