Whenever I think about telling new people about my doll hobby, I am never quite sure how to go about it. I always debate exactly what I should call it. In your opinion, what is the difference between a bjd hobby and a bjd collector. Do you think the two words are synonymous? Obviously if you are a doll collector you are in the hobby, but if you are in the hobby do you automatically fall into the category of doll collector? Do you consider yourself a collector after acquiring a certain number of dolls? Or, what if you considered yourself a collector, but don't plan on purchasing anymore, do you continue to deem yourself "doll collector?" ...I know, I've put WAY too much thought into this lol but I thought it would be interesting to see how others define their doll pursuits.
