TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3158:

Today I want to blog about the fact that yesterday was the 4th Anniversary of this Blog!

I was so busy over the weekend that I didn't recognize the date as being that significant until I came across that fact after already blogging for the day.

That's because this Blog originally started out on the eBay blogging platform back on June 7th of 2006. I would notice certain dates on that platform, and would mention them as a blog post.

So I'm sure you are wondering why isn't this Blog on the eBay platform now?

Well, in August of 2009, we were given approximately 50 days to make other arrangements on posting our blogs.

Luckily in February of 2007, I had already started posting both on the eBay platform and this 'Tripod' platform.  Good thing, because eBay actually ended up closing down their blogging platform before October 31st!  Some Trick n' Treat that was!

This is what I blogged when I first mentioned that the eBay blogs were closing: Click here!

I already had 3,000+ archived blog posts on eBay, but several of them were truly eBay ads for items that were no longer available in my eBay store, so I didn't copy them to my Tripod format...

That's why after 4 years there's 'only' 3,158 archived blog posts that still exist.  But that's a little over an average of 2 posts a day!

I guess I was a little enthusiastic there at the beginning...LOL!

I only post one blog a day now, as each one is like a web page unto itself.

For a while there I was running a 'Main Feature' AND a 'Featurette'.  The 'Featurette' started as a photo with a caption at the bottom right of the blog, and ended up being a mini-blog, so in effect I was generating 2 blogs in 1!

Well, I'm still pleased to blog what either I, or Tina & I want to 'talk' about 4 years later...

The blog has evolved into one of a comics centered online publication, especially after taking the name of 'Comic Book Collectors Blog.com' back in February of 2007.

The WGA Strike 'killed' my interest in blogging about Sci-Fi & other TV Shows, UNLESS they had a comic book series, or were really outstanding enough to blog about at least once.

Even though this Blog won $100 in the eBay Blog Contest in June of 2006, it is NOT the monetization of the blog that keeps me writing.

It is the interactivity with YOU, my Blog's readers, that keeps me blogging away, sharing what Tina and I find at comic cons, or what is sent in to me for possible mention!

Thanks for reading and 'listening' today! Feel free to 'follow' this blog at NetworkedBlogs, or the RSS Feed.  Also, you are welcome to become interactive with myself and other Facebook Comic Con | Make It So Marketing group members. 

I do appreciate YOUR reading this blog post today, and any of the archived blogs you have read in the past, or will in the future.

AND... Happy 4th Birthday to Comic Book Collectors Blog.com!

My thanks to those of YOU that have read today's blog post! I do appreciate that!

For those of you that didn't know me before today...I first set up as a 'dealer' at the 1972 San Diego West Coast Comic Con (SDCC) at the El Cortez Hotel. So I've been around comic conventions for a little while, LOL 

My wife Tina and I now have an on-line exhibitor (dealer) table at the first "virtual" comic con titled the "Facebook Comic Con" (FBCC)!

You can view our dealer table and interact with us there on Facebook by clicking this link, which takes you to our table named: 'Facebook Comic Con | Make It So Marketing'. 

So if YOU are a Facebook member, please 'join' our Facebook Comic Con - Make It So Marketing exhibitor table for updates, specials, links to this blog, and other wall comments that we post every day! 

 Also, if you are a Facebook member and would like to also join my Facebook Network, feel free to send a 'friend request' to 'Michael D Hamersky'. I am reaching the maximum of 5,000 Facebook Friends soon, and I don't want YOU to be left out!

Talking about comics: if YOU are a comics creator, (writer, penciler, inker, colorist, letterer, etc.), OR even a Comics / Magazine Publisher, feel free to contact me regarding YOUR works for a possible mention / review.

I'm always ready to be 'blown away' into a great storyline!

I've made a special blog post about: "How To Best Submit YOUR Publication For Possible Review!" for those creators / publishers that would like to possibly have their publications mentioned or reviewed. Just click on the link provided in this paragraph!
