In case you’ve missed it, the nomination process for Cycle 7 of the LEGO Ambassadors is well underway. Here at LAML, Aaron Andrews graciously offered to represent the podcast as an official LEGO Ambassador in the nomination process.
Here is how Aaron put it to me:
I have been voted out of the running for LA on Flickr. I am still running for LA on the Forbidden Cove but I would like to run for LAML too. I believe that we have the audience to justify it. Also I would prefer to run for two communities, and since flickr is out, the next online location that I am devoted to is LAML. I also feel it would be very beneficial to the podcast to have the ear of TLC. We could even run a LEGO sponsored contest later in the year similar to what Keith G did for the You control the action contest
I think Aaron`s right, having a local Ambassador for the largest LEGO podcast would be great, no doubt. But the Ambassador program has been set up for AFOL communities and I`m not convinced that LAML fits that bill.
I mean, are we really even a community?
Despite attempts at creating a larger community (mainly through live shows) nothing has really ever taken off. We of course have this blog, but that seems about it. I think for the most part people simply check their iTunes feed every so often and check for the latest episode. There is of course nothing wrong with that, but does that make us a community?P.S. Expect some more episode in June and July as I gear up for another big August.
