This guy is back. Yeah the picture is small, but the voice is not. When I got into blogging many years ago, it was Mario Alejandro that spurred me on. His Wax Heaven was definitely my driving force and he was probably the closest thing I had to a friend in the blogging world. Well it’s been pretty topsy turvy for both he and I over the past few years but he’s back (again). If you haven’t seen his new blog on Tumblr, I encourage you to do so, he just cracked open a 2014 Topps Stadium Club box and got some very nice hits.
As for me, I feel like I need to blog more often. Many times I find myself wanting to share my opinion on a sports topic or a new design I made and I take to Twitter or Facebook. It’s not the same. Sure I get a few likes, but it’s not the same as when I ran the Bad Wax Blog. So I am going to blog more often. Running a blog is not as easy as it seems. I ran Bad Wax for five years, it became like a job to me, except I wasn’t being paid to do it. Towards the end, I was burned out, I relied on contests and reviews to grind through. It became a drag and in the end I just stopped. The problem is once you stop being a daily blogger, it becomes so easy to slide into the, “I’ll just skip today and post tomorrow” mode. I tried to come back this summer and failed miserably. So here I am to try again. Except this time I am going to do my best to make my posts more entertaining and more interesting. Will I post everyday? I have no idea. Probably not, but I can tell you that when I do post it will be more entertaining.
So, let’s sum up everything, blogging is a grind. Mario from Wax Heaven is back and blogging again. I am creating new cut autographs using real signed cards. This blog will be updated a hell of a lot more often!
Here’s to a great new year,
Mike from Bad Wax Customs
