My First Milestone: 1500 Points

| $tarCollector

This article is about my first major milestone on my way of becoming better at collecting, after this blog is published I will have more than 1500 points, a(sort of)long way from where I started at 0. In this blog I will thank everybody who helped me reach this goal, my friends, and I will talk about my other blogs.
I give credit to the following people who helped me get this far. Starting at the top we have:

coinsbygary, who I think was the first to friend me.

The next are in random order.

Longstrider, who has commented on most of my blogs

Kepi, who has some pretty good blogs

Mike, the oldest Numismatist of all my friends

Mokie, who has given a lot of comments to my blogs

Long Beard, in our private chat he has given me some helpful info

CoinHunter, who I really don't know much about, him being one of my newer friends

I. R. Bama, one of my earliest and most loyal friends

thatcoinguy, who has a lot of facts about coins

the coin guy, who I also don't know much about, him being a new friend

CoinCollector7777, another early and loyal friend

TheHobbyist, who taught me how to change my name, a thing I have used multiple times

CheerioCoins, a new and helpful friend

And finally, AC Coin$, an original friend who has helped me and even gave me my current name

These fellow Numismatists have been very helpful to me and I an only mentioning a few of the things they have done. Thank you fellow Numismatists. These blogs are available to read in my blog section of my account:

Didn't say you did cut or paste.

I was not inferring you did say that. I was stating that as one of my guarantees to my readers.

Does anybody know what YN dollars are and how you get them with points?

Kepi

Level 6

Go to main page click resources on the orange bar to the far left...then go to Young Numismatist oy YN. That will give the information. What grade are you in?

Thanks for the shoutout!

We are glad you are here. We all help each other grow as collectors no matter how new or how experienced, there is always a lot more to learn.

Looking at your blog Mokie is absolutely on the money. Learning. Not stats or writing blogs everyday. A good blog maybe once a week. That's how long it takes me. Research is very important. Not cut and paste. That's A waste of time. Someone sees an article and cut and paste. They don't even read it. Or they try and make everyone they know what there talking about. Blogs should be written in your own words. Thanks for reading my blog

I would like you to know that not one word in all of my blogs has been copied or pasted from a different site/coin magazine. That is one of my guarantees to my readers, never copy or paste news from another site.

Thanks for this blog. I don’t deserve any credit. Your blogs are great! Thanks!

Kepi

Level 6

That was big of you to say I have "some pretty good" blogs...

$tarCollector

Level 4

Well, I have looked at all your US coin(my Numismatic field of interest)blogs and they are well done and interesting.

$tarCollector

Level 4

By the way, what are YN dollars and how do you get them with points?

Kepi

Level 6

How old are you???

It's Mokie

I don't think you can fashion yourself a true numismatist unless you reach out to your fellow collector and share knowledge. We learn best when we collaborate with each other and this forum provides an excellent opportunity to do just that. Congrats on your 1500 points, it means that you have become an active and valuable member of our little community.

That is why I posted this blog.

Longstrider

Level 6

That's great. Here it comes, BUT you should try to concentrate on learning more. Points is points. They allow you to bid on YN auctions but that's it. Carry on. Just my opinion.

$tarCollector

Level 4

Yes, I agree with that, but I think Mokie's comment best explains what this blog is about.

Keep on participating and you can reach higher goals. Posting two blogs a day will help quite a bit on getting points.

Mike

Level 7

Thanks for the plug. But points mean nothing. They help the kids get money for there auctions. That's all. There is no number one. Were all collectors!!

$tarCollector

Level 4

I do not mean it in that sense though. I think Mokie's comment is a good explanation of why this blog was written.

$tarCollector

Level 4

You guys are great!

I appreciate the sentiment. I'm by no means an expert, just the working stiff sort that's been collecting....sorry, hoarding....for five decades. Aside from coinage I love books, older books, first editions when available for sale. Hard cover naturally. I'm also the sort who retains in their memory that which they've read. Many do not for a number of reasons.

My pleasure, good luck, keep growing ***
