My buddy Tim over at Cardpocalypse, has created a 7 day Trading Card Challenge which has taken the blogosphere by storm.
There is a good variety of topics to cover throughout the challenge so are you up for the challenge? I am.
There are many trends I could pick that were the worst ones sadly, but there were a few good ones I could choose from. I will go offbeat with this one and say, the Best Hobby Trend to emerge this year is.......
With everything going on this year, I have seen so many collectors lift others up by doing giveaways and RAK's, etc. It's been great to see and be apart of myself. This year has been anything but great but seeing others finding ways to make it better for others not only helps yourself feel better but everyone else. I hope this hobby trend continues as I see the road not getting any smoother for the rest of the year as it appears the trend this year is a full push down of the pedal of bad things. I call it the 2020 Hunger Games.
And yes, of course there are still those bad apples out there but the only thing you can do for them is either pray for them or keep on encouraging them as well to make a change. Or you could do both. You never know what some positivity can do.
I wrote a piece over at Cards Over Coffee on Positivity which you can read here,
