I say this every time I hit a round number, but when I started this blog, I never thought I would get this far. Of course, if you take out the trade posts and the contest posts, the number drops from 900 to about 60.
Seriously, it’s a big number and I’m glad to have reached it. I hope to keep the blog going for the foreseeable future, so who knows how many posts I’ll end up with. Maybe I’ll even do another play at the plate post sometime.
I guess I really just want to say thanks to everyone, whether you’ve been with me since the beginning or you jumped on for the ride anytime between post 1 and 900.
Now for the reason you’re really here today. The June Contest.
You might think I’d have some amazing contest to coincide with post #900.
Well, you’d be wrong.
You already know I like to keep the contests simple. I also like to ask a question or two. Not difficult questions really, just for my own research. So the June contest will involve a series of questions. The first one will be at the end of this post. The rest will come next week, beginning on Monday. “Why next week Mr. PATP? Why must we wait?” Well, the real reason is that I’m going to be unavailable next week. Unavailable to blog at least. I don’t want readership to dip to zero while I’m away from the blog, so I’ll schedule a question for each day from Monday to Friday. You can answer as many questions as you want, from 0-6. You’ll get one entry into the randomizer for each question you answer. The questions will be open all week so if you miss one, you can go back and answer it later.
As always, there’s no need to publicize the contest unless you want to. It’s not required. Just have fun and thanks for following along these last 900 posts.
The prize…what can we have for a prize? A few packs of cards, the unopened variety of course, and some cards from your favorite team, player or want lists. I’ll close the contest questions after I return and do the randomization for Monday the 13th.
The first question is about commenting on blogs. Do you do it on a regular basis? What does it take to get you to comment?
Good luck and I hope you all win.
Wait, I can’t afford that.
Good luck anyway and thanks for reading Play at the Plate!
