Trying To Be Better

Today I ran across this post from Julie of A Cracked Bat.

That post gave me pause to think about how I've failed at being a good blogger, and it's something I need to change.

The main problem that I have is my health, a very detrimental thing in my life, and that detriment at times causes problems with the blog.

Officially this is post number 898...but I have started and failed to finish hundreds of posts, for many reasons, mainly from my arthritis.

So many times I've received packages from bloggers, and because I was to ill to post that day, I set the package aside...sometimes for days...and then when I'd try to post about it, I had to stop again....and again.

I should've worked through it, but I didn't, and to all those who were affected, I truly apologize to you all.

So many times I've written a post to talk about a baseball topic of the day, a Happy Baseball Birthday! , baseball cards my wife bought me, a trade that I made, or something I won on Twitter, only to have to stop because of my arthritis.

I'm hoping for a much better effort on my part in 2018.

Speaking of birthdays, a belated #HappyBaseballBirthday goes out to James of BDJ6010's Topps Baseball Card Blog.

In Julie's post I mentioned that I had made exactly one trade on Twitter. .

...that 2014 Topps Miguel Cabrera Black Border card was traded to me by Jenny of Jenny's Card Collecting.

This Miguel Sano card went her way...

...I actually pulled the Sano card from a retail pack my wife picked up for me, although it took a few days for me to realize I has a SP card...

...can you imagine...a Tigers fan trading with a Twins fan...amazing!

Give Jenny's blog a follow, and, if you're on Twitter, give her a follow there as well.

Well, that's it for now...until next time... PLAY BALL! ⚾️
