I’m getting creamed in the U.D Awards. Where my people at?

In all seriousness, though … fellow collectors and readers of Wax Heaven are some of the nicest people I have ever known. It’s been a trying few months as baseball cards have taken a back seat to winning back my true love, and ultimately failing miserably.

I’ve had feelings of anger, sadness, bitterness, and even thoughts of suicide. As I began hitting rock bottom into a pit of events I’d rather not discuss, I’ve received hundreds of e-mails and blog posts showing support for me and the site, which has lost 2/3 of the daily visitors since December.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to respond to any emails but still keep in touch on an almost daily basis through Twitter and for a clever few, on Facebook on my non-sports cards account. As for those acts of kindness, there are just too many to mention but this one in particular almost made me shed a tear.

Truthfully, I don’t know if I’ll ever return full-time to the card blogosphere, which has blown up lately and I don’t even know if I’ll ever enjoy trading cards again in general but I just want to thank every single reader and friend for their continued support. It’s amazing how many people care about the Perez Hilton of card blogging.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
