And that’s the end of regular posting here at Pogressiveruin.com. This was always intended to be a project with a limited lifespan, and if you stuck with it…thank you! I hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane. Or perhaps you relived some past terrors previously, thankfully, forgotten.
Now, I said that’s the end of regular posting. I will still update once in a while, as, believe it or not, I’m still sort of plowing through items in this collection, and as I come across new items of interest, I’ll throw ’em up on this site. I just won’t be doing it on a daily basis any longer.
It has also been pointed out to me that I didn’t write nearly enough about the actual retailing of pogs. While I covered the topic to some extent on my other site…yeah, I probably should have said more about it here. I’ll see what I can do about going into more detail about the retail end of things in future posts.
So anyway, it’s not “goodbye,” but “see you again in a while.”
KEEP ON SLAMMIN’
