Just a little cross pollination

Well folks Im still not feeling back up to speed with my blogging . Even though I have always loved everything about this season, in recent years it has became a time where I find I have to push myself a lot harder to make it through the day and do things I need to do and not just sit and stare out the window. So , with that said I thought it would be a cool idea to share a couple  blogs that I really enjoy visiting that maybe some of you out there haven't came across yet. It never hurts to do a little cross pollination here in the blogosphere.

First is She's Fantastic , a blog dedicated to female action figures!
Shesfantastic has simply the BEST collection of female action figures on the web.The blog covers figures from a vast selection of lines and you are sure to find something there that you wish you owned!

Next is The Collectors Lens
My friend Big Manila, owner of The Collectors Lens, posts great photographs from his amazing collection.His vintage Robotech toys are truly something to behold , I dont remember them ever looking that awesome back in the 80's.He also posts about an assortment of other toy lines that are all really cool.

So if you guys haven't already you should definitely check these two out when you have a chance!

  1. Yeah my blog is more boring than whale shit in comparison to many blogs out there. I think my best feature is restoring toys or making playsets and that is about it. You guys take awesome and MANY pics of your stuff.

    1. Nah , I think you have a working formula with your blog, one or two shots of the items then an action shot of either you with the item or in a tarantula tank or something like that. it works well with your blog. my blog on the other hand, I cant get my formula right anymore. I know people want more writing like I used to post but I just dont feel witty or humorous anymore when I try to write something ,in fact i feel like I shouldn't be writing at all after I sit and reread it.Getting the pictures can be a real pain in the butt but people seem to like them.

  2. Whenever i lose perspective on my blog its usually because other more important things have come into focus.But really ive found that lately not a whole lot has caught my attention toy wise.There have been maybe one or two things out there that i like but i cant just pick things up for the sake of my blog,i really have to dig what im buying.Im not in great shape,monetarily to pick up anything i see just to do a quick one post review on it for the sake of my readers.No offense but life comes first,so dont ever feel bad about not living up to your blogs or readers expectations ,its not your job to lol ;)

    1. Hey man I hear you, Im broke a** poor myself. Im still suffering from buying that walking dead figure. It was a huge mistake on my part but whats done is done and I will eat plain rice till I get my next once a month check :/ Yeah its not just the blog Iv let go unattended its pretty much everything and I just need to snap myself back out of it. the 2 year anniversary of the worst day in my life just past last month and I tried to just blog my self busy so it wouldn't effect me but it didn't work. Really, I have enough horded crap to do a blog post on a different figure everyday for the next 10 years but Iv started getting picky because it kind of sucks to only get 5 page views for a set of photos that I think have turned out great but nobody wants to look at.

    2. Sorry to hear about that man.I think the point i was trying to make was to do it for yourself and forget about who likes it or not.How about renaming your blog ,reinvent yourself .Changing up the appearance and name of a blog sometimes gives you more incentive to log on and look at your posts in a different light.Hang in there Allen ,everything will work out at one point or another.

    3. See I like to think that Im doing it for myself but the entire truth is I only do it for the connection with other people I get through the comments and the friends I make from it.If it wasn't for this blog and the people i have met from it I would go days if not weeks without any kind of human interaction because I dont talk to anybody really in real life. I wasn't always just a flat out toy blog, I used to post about everything but I ended up get like 4 page views on a post that took me 3 days to put together so i shifted to what it seemed like people were most interested in.

    4. Well for what its worth im always checking in ;) Im as anti social as they come Allen and cringe everytime theirs a parent teacher conference or any other serious face to face meeting of any importance.I suck at small talk unless its about something that interests me lol.Its all good though Brother.Whatever it is that gets you through the tough times ,keep doing it.Nobody has the masterplan;)

    5. Hey and I appreciate it! Im glad i can call you my friend and I think we would get along in real life pretty well. The good thing for me is I only have to see people if I want to . I live in the absolute middle of nowhere and dont drive so i really do have to go out of my way to see people in the flesh and blood. Im real bad with talking to people face to face because I guess my interests are so specialized most people dont care about what i would have to talk about. I mean really how many people do you come across in day to day life that mainly want to talk about toys , antique glass bottles and movie posters? I find it to be very few lol. This one strange time I was miles out in the wood digging where a house once stood in the 20's when a confused hunter walked up on me . After I screamed like a little girl and scared the crap out of him we had an interesting conversation about drive in movie theaters and tin wind up toys...a strange one in a million chance occurrence.It came to mind on my way back home that it could have been a Deliverance situation and nobody would have ever found me.
