I got this surprise today. Six years ago I registered on WordPress. It wasn’t for this blog, Yoda archives is under 3 years right now. I registered to be a contributor on a festival blog. The blog was an extension to board that I’m a moderator on. Turned out we didn’t use the blog much. But when I wanted to blog on my own I remembered wordpress.
You registered on WordPress.com 6 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!
Get the Most Out of Widgets: Building and Showcasing Your Community.
Last month, we highlighted some widgets and hope you’ve since activated them! Today, let’s continue our widgets tour and focus on several that put the spotlight on the readership you’ve built. Your site isn’t just about you or your organization — it’s very much enriched by the community around you
A great CUUSSO project shared by The Brick Collectors. CUUSSO Member Jedikermit has created some custom Muppet minifigs and vignettes with suggestions for more Muppet sets. The stage from the opening credits of Muppet show would make a great display for mini-figs.. Sam the Eagle would be easy to make reusing chicken suit guy’s body.
The Muppets would make an excellent series for LEGO sets, and have potential for both young builders and Adult Fans Of LEGO. There are dozens of popular characters, but there are also vehicles, playsets, and scenes that would make great buildable LEGO sets. Like other Disney properties that LEGO has produced, including Toy Story, Cars, and Pirates of the Caribbean, there’s a built-in audience of fans young and old that would be able to enjoy the system.
Some suggested sets at various price points:
KERMIT’S SWAMP $7.99
Kermit the Frog in a small swamp scene, with his banjo, some lily pads, and possibly a friendly alligator or his nephew Robin to add some play value. Could even include his bicycle that he uses to pedal away from it all in The Muppet Movie.
ELECTRIC MAYHEM BUS $39.99
The band from The Muppet Show has always been popular with kids and adults, and this set would include their bus as seen in The Muppet Movie. Characters would include Dr. Teeth, Floyd, Janice, Zoot and Animal, and all of their instruments would come with the set. A small stage could be built with the bus, or they could perform on top of the bus. They’re hippies like that.
MUPPET THEATER $59.99
The largest set would be The Muppet Theater, which would include a stage area, and a balcony to the side. Exclusive minifigures like Statler and Waldorf (the two old guys from the balcony), Sam Eagle, Swedish Chef, Rowlf the Dog, Mahna-Mahna and the Snowths, and unique versions of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy could be included. Ideally, it would be wonderful to have different scenes for sketches that could be put onto the stage: some brick-built arches that represent the beginning of The Muppet Show; a small kitchen for the Swedish Chef, a grand piano for Rowlf..
This is is an awesome CUUSOO project please support Muppet LEGO CUUSOO.

I never kept a blog with my Hyperspace account so this blog is not affected. I’m just spreading the word in case anyone has a blog there.
By The way if you need a new blog home I recommend wordpress.
