This is AwesomeToyBlog’s 1000th post, which sort of amazes me. I just wanted to take a quick break from the Comic-con coverage and take a moment to call out a few folks who help this blog out, either directly or indirectly. There’s a great group of folks on twitter, many of them bloggers themselves that I’ve come to respect; OAFE, williambwest, slickmcfavorite, rac2750 and exveebrawn. All great folks, all people you should follow. Two others, who I have a crazy amount of respect for are Adam Pawlus (adam16bit on twitter of 16bit.com) and Bobbi of RavingToyManiac. Both have helped AwesomeToyBlog in ways they probably can’t imagine. Nor would they want to.
On the corporate side of things, I need to thank Robyn at Underground Toys and Danny with HunterPR (who works on the team that handles Hasbro’s PR). These were the first two companies I worked with as a blogger, and content they provided resulted in some much needed traffic early on. Over the course of this year, I’ve really widened the scope of the site as I now interact with NECA, Mezco, Funko, Lego, Sideshow and others.
So what’s the future hold for AwesomeToyBlog? In the next year I’m looking to expand the site, and maybe even bring on some contributors. SDCC 2011 was a huge success, thanks to my exclusives tracker – so I’ll announce now that I will be having a 2012 SDCC exclusives page; and I’ll be working hard to make it the biggest and most comprehensive list out there! Stick around as the next 1000 posts are going to be great!
