whoa, has it been that long?

I'm on LAML!

You can listen to (and laugh at) me here.

There's been a bunch more stuff going on too.

One of the things that has happened with me since the Journal went t o print is that my deadlines are now about two months earlier than they were before. Which means that my news isn't necessarily current by the time it reaches print. Which annoys me to no end, but I getting over. I have to be looking toward the horizon for issues now and keep track of what is going on.

But things are much more exciting now - the idea of the mag hitting newsstands is starting to sink in, and it's a pretty giddy feeling. Sorta like rehearsing for a play for a LONG time and getting ready for the first show. Or trying to hatch an egg.

BrickJournal will be in the US LEGO stores, so there's another way to get one - it should be in newsstands (at least in the major cities, as they seem to be testing it) and we do have a European Bricklink salesperson at 1001bricks - he can save internationals some money on shipping!

We will be offering a way for clubs to save money or maybe earn money too.

And if you haven't gone to the BrickJournal webpage, you haven't seen the  chat with Jørgen Vig Knudstorp that I was fortunate  to have - it was a fun video! Very nerve-wracking initially, but it quickly become a lot of fun!

And yes, I have been roadtripping - went to Frechen, and also did business meetings in Billund. Some neat things are happening as a result. BrickJournal is going to get some neat info in the coming months.

But for now, I gotta get back to work - working on the first BrickJournal compendium - Issue 1-3 in a book!

More later!
