Searched around, but didn't find a thread like this (unless it's somewhere in last page limbo), so to restate: How is your attitude towards your dolls and the hobby now versus the time you received your first doll? Do you feel that you need to keep your interest in the hobby as you did when you first started? If not, does this make you a negligent owner? As for me, I got my boy back in 2007 and loved the time I had with him. I took so many pictures, was never afraid to take him out wherever I went, I always loved dressing him in many different ways, and even did drawings of him and other bjds I liked. Nowadays, my attitudes toward the hobby have changed. Not necessarily in a bad way, but I feel that I don't have the same enthusiasm as I used to have about the hobby. It wasn't even that long ago that I got him, but lately, the hobby has bumped down my priority list because of school, jobs, etc. I felt bad neglecting him for so long and I even tried to sell him, but had no luck. I didn't know how much commitment came into owning these dolls (reselling is so hard! DX ). Now I've tried to regain that interest, and it seems to be working out a bit. I've been re-styling my boy and have a new set of clothes for him to wear, and it seems that it's bringing me back into the hobby. I still don't think I'll do as much as I used to with my boy, but I hope that doesn't make me a bad owner. I do a lot to take care of him, but I just don't "play" with him as much any more. My life has to go on, and it seems that the bjd hobby isn't much of a hobby for me anymore. How do you guys feel about changed attitudes about the hobby? Does it just happen? Has it happened to you? Will it ever?
