It’s coming up on my annual renewal for trekkerscrapbook.com. ( June 10th)
I plan to renew it for another year and hope to bring you all the Trek ideas that have been stewing in my mind.
However, I have decided that that this next year will be my last as publisher of this blog. It’s expensive and as you may have noticed I hardly post as much as I did when I started this little party 12 years ago! I admit, talking only about Star Trek can be limiting, and I realize that as it is my blog, I can discuss plenty of other topics, and sometimes I want to, but I decline, thinking that it would be ignored or misinterpreted.
But it’s not just that. I am by no means old (heck, I just turned 62!), but the longer one lives, the more one realizes that time is a finite thing, and every day is precious. I have many obligations and dreams in my life, and although this one is a pleasure, it is not on my list of high priorities.
Please note: When I end this blog next year, there will still be the Facebook Group for this page, where we can all get together for fun, so be sure to join it! I’ll occasionally post there too! I’ll give you plenty warning. For now I’m archiving all my posts for my own posterity!
I still love my little site of course and I am so grateful for your patronage! I look forward to sharing one more year of my Trek memories and my art work with you. Here’s to the last new year!
I’m so excited to say that after 10 years posting this blog, I figured it was time to give this ol’ girl a little renovation! So with the help of my Excellent WordPress Tech Person, Trish, I upgraded the look of my little page to something a little more modern and eye-friendly! A THOUSAND thanks, Trish! To be fair, the old web design I was using, “Coraline” had been retired. So a new year, a new look!
I’ve also added a “Buy me a Coffee Cup of Tea” Button above right so if you like what you see here, you can donate to me above (and here) with one click! This will really help to support the financial end of this blog. Sadly, since Covid began, I haven’t been able to to do much Substitute Teacher aide work so any contribution is welcome <3 (but no obligation!)
I hope you’ll enjoy the new look, and I’ll probably make a few tweaks here and there as time goes on. (Wondering if I can add my own custom font to the header above). Let me know how you like it! It certainly inspires me to write more posts! (and a little more variety too!) With luck it will go on for another 10 years!
Thank you all my readers for helping to make this site a reality! Be sure to check the archives (here on the right by the month and year) to catch up on anything you missed! (Over a 1000 posts!)
Well here’s a milestone I never expected; this is my 1000th post! How’d that happen?
I started this blog way back on June 11, 2011, and I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I’d write this much about this ol’ TV show, or about Mr. Nimoy, or just anything else that popped into my head. And I definitely never imagined that anyone would read my little blog, let alone have a following! At the time I had minimal experience with blogs, writing posts for the wonderful Basket of Kissessite, but I just wanted to bring to life the Star Trek Universe from my corner of the world. It’s been a fun and wonderful learning experience. Often rewarding (like helping Celeste Yarnall with her cancer fund), and just knowing I can make some people smile) and sometimes frustrating (Is anyone actually reading my full posts are just looking at the picture in the promo on Facebook?) Sometimes I regret the name I gave this site too, as it tends gets confused with delightful (and very popular) My Star Trek Scrapbook.
And now a request: Nothing would make me happier than hearing from you in regards to what you like here and what you’d like to see? I always love reading comments from you and it inspires me to create more. So please let me know:
What’s your favorite feature?
Do you like my Trek toons and posters?
Is there enough Nimoy? Too much?
What would you like to see?
Should I change the name of this blog?
Also, if you have a piece of TOS memorabilia, TOS production photos, candid photos of Leonard Nimoy, or an old article you’d like to share, please send me a picture of it here at:
So here’s to the next 1000, and I’ll be back tomorrow with this week’s installment of Fan Art Fridays (aka FArF). I’m especially looking forward to writing posts this year in this special golden anniversary of the original series. I have many things in mind, new videos and categories that I hope you’ll enjoy! Thank you so much for your support through good and bad, and if you know anyone who likes or is just discovering The Original Series, let them know about my little site! Share the geekness! Thanks! Therese <3
