It's that time again – Weirdo Toys' Birthday! The site is 3 years old today. (What does that mean exactly? I dunno. I guess it means I still have enough money to keep the site alive. Ha!)
It's usually this time of year that I like to look back and reflect on what's happened with the site, but realistically, not much new has happened. Most of what's been happening has been in my personal life.
Since last year I lost my job, got married, got my job back and in just over a month, I'm gonna have a new son. So, yeah... I've been distracted
I'd like to take this time to just thank you guys for reading and sticking with me. Surprisingly, I've noticed my readership is actually growing even with my sparse blog posts. I can attribute that to my increased Twitter presence and to you great toy-loving, blog-sharing weirdos.
Alright, since I haven't tried to break new ground all year, I figured I'd do it today. I've actually created one of those annoying video blogs (vlog) documenting my process from getting a toy from my shelf to your screen. (Oddly enough, I've had several requests for this sort of thing over the years, so what the heck. Might as well do it, huh?)
(I'm gonna warn you. If you like my "blog voice," maybe you shouldn't watch this. It's the real me :O )
But wait! Let's not forget why we came here. The free toy!
As you saw featured in the video, the toy given away this year is Seezall. This guy is one of my favorites from my favorite group of super-heroes, the Gross Out Gang. One lucky winner will get this Seezall figure.
And if that's not enough, I'm also gonna throw in a Weirdo Toys Apple Devil t-shirt. That way you can go to the playground in your new tee, play with your toy and get beat up by the local bullies. Fun times!
All you have to do is leave a comment answering two simple questions:
1. How did you find the Weirdo Toys blog?
2. Why did you stay?
Just know, I'm not choosing a winner based on content. I'm gonna draw a name at random from the comments who qualify and announce the winners a week from now.
Thanks everyone. Best of luck, and thanks for reading!
