I usually spend about an hour or so each morning reading other blogs. Depending on how many new posts there are, I'll try to at least skim through each one (Of course there are a few "must-reads"!) More often than not something will catch my attention and I'll end up going back and reading the whole post from the beginning.
I was reading a particular favorite blog of mine recently, and it wasn't so much that day's content that caught my attention, but rather the list of followers on the side. The blog had less followers than me, and that didn't seem it could possibly be correct.
It led me to looking at the numbers of the other blogs I read (at least, those that use the follower feature on Blogger). There's quite a few out there with less followers than me, and to be perfectly honest, they deserve more. I thought it would be nice to just highlight a few blogs I read, and encourage my followers to give them a follow as well. Maybe I'll make this a monthly thing, just something simple to spread the love.
Here are 3 blogs that deserve your time and attention:
There are super-collectors, and then there is Brian. Brian is the ultimate Andrew McCutchen fan, and has close to 3,000 unique cards in his collection. The best reason to follow his blog however, comes during his Save Second Base event in October. Brian is a huge supporter of breast cancer awareness and research, and his daily October posts feature plenty of pink cards and lovely ladies.
You may know him as Comishbob from the blog The Five Tool Collector, but he has another blog where he's showing off each and every card from the beautiful 1960 Topps set. Each vintage card gets its own write-up, showcasing the players career and how they did in 1960.
Nothing If Not Random
Sometimes it's good to read posts about stuff outside of the trading card hobby. Don't worry, you'll get plenty of that too, but with TV, movie and music reviews mixed in as well. This is also the home of the Affordable Group Break, where he frequently busts cheap boxes of cards.
As I said, there's plenty of other blogs out there that could use a boost, so maybe I'll make this a regular thing.
