Allen Bohart

Ephemera did an interesting interview recently with fellow collector and blogger, Allen Bohart (left), about the joys and challenges of stamp collecting.

Allen's blog, Philatelic Tidbits,is one of my favorites. He's also the Chairman of the Americana Series Study Group (ASSG), and a member of the United States Stamp Society (USSS).

When asked,"What's your advice to achieving success as a collector?," Allen replied, "The more personal your collection is, the more it will mean to you, and the more enjoyment you will get out of it."

"I see way too many people out there who collect for the sheer numbers of it, either numerically or financially, and I think that those people are not getting the full experience that collecting has to offer."

Good advice.
