It’s official: 2019 is behind us, a new year is in full swing, and the times, they are a changin’! Who better to discuss the changes happening here at Toy Photographers than our two fearless leaders, Shelly and Alan?

Last month, Shelly announced that she’s stepping down from her current position here on the blog in order to “grow and go,” explore new challenges and pass the baton to Alan, our newly-appointed Editor in Chief.

New year, new adventures

But what does that mean for you, the Toy Photographers community member, reader and listener? To answer that question, I invited Shelly and Alan onto the podcast to share their reasons behind the change and to preview some of the exciting things we have coming in 2020. Of course we also had a great bit of fun talking about our toy addictions and throwing around ideas for future projects, podcasts and blog posts.

We want to hear from you!

Is there something you’d like to see from us in the new year? Make sure you’re subscribed to our mailing list, because we’ll soon be sending a survey to collect responses from the community. You can also leave a comment and get the conversation going right here on the blog post!

Thanks for listening, and thanks to Shelly and Alan for taking the time to share their insights on these exciting changes. I wish Shelly the very best of luck on her new creative endeavors, and am thankful that she won’t be too far away from the action. And I look forward to working with Alan even more on both the blog and podcast in the new year.

Onward and upward, my friends,
