Boy oh boy, I've gone way too long since my last blog post. Yes, it's true my spare time has been largely occupied by a little three-month-old person who know lives in our house, plus those oh-so-fun springtime chores that beckon from the backyard.
But, more than that, I've become recently hypnotized by Zistle. More specifically, systematically entering my collection onto the site, creating custom collections, and so forth. I've had a ball going through my cards and cross-checking them against the vast Zistle database. I've even given my scanner copious amounts of electronic cardio work, adding images to the site.
So that's where I've been. I don't know what's taken me so long to get on the Zistle train. I know lots of fellow bloggers/collectors use the site, but I've never bothered to investigate previously. From what I've seen thus far, it's the best free site out there in terms of organizing one's collection. Easy to navigate and lots of convenient sorting options. Heck, it beats the rot out of just keeping a bunch of different Google spreadsheets, which was what I had been doing.
Anyhow, I've decided to begin by tackling my Mets collection. That means adding all the cards to a custom collection, fixing any database errors and adding card images I've scanned. Sounds kinda boring on the surface, but I'm having fun with it. In a past life, I was a heck of a data entry clerk, I guess.
I'm sure the novelty will wane in due time and I'll get back to my regular blogging routine. After all, I've gotten a few really great trade packages over the past week or so. Plus, I have the itch to rekindle my Four Topps feature, which I have probably done maybe once over the past three weeks. Ugh.
In the meantime, my scanner is calling me.
Oh, and, by the way...
