WEBSITE: NathanTK743

Hello, my name is Nathan K. (that’s not my full name, of course). I’m also known as ntk743. I have been a LEGO fan since 2009, so you can say that I’m a fairly new to LEGO! :)

I’m a TFOL (Teen-Fan-of-LEGO) and I got into the hobby by getting a LEGO Club Magazine subscription from a friend. I liked LEGO City at first, then LEGO Star Wars and now LEGO Ninjago! (Even though I still like all of them!) I know a lot of my posts here aren’t about Ninjago, but that’s because Geneva – gid617 does a good job covering everything related to Ninjago, so it’s hard to find news that she hasn’t posted already! :D

Here are some fun facts about me:

  1. I got my first LEGO Club Magazine in February of 2010.
  2. I have approximately 110 LEGO minifigures!
  3. I enjoy building with my bulk LEGO, but keep all my sets together!
  4. My favorite ninja from Ninjago is Kai (if not counting Lloyd).
  5. My favorite villains from Ninjago are Lord Garmadon (with four arms) and Samukai (I have both of them).
  6. I have 3 four-armed minifigures; General Grevious, Lord Garmadon, and Samukai!
  7. If you add up all my LEGO their worth comes to about $600!
  8. My LEGO ID is: ntk743 so invite me as your friend! :P
  9. I enjoy video-games, especially LEGO video-games!
  10. I love playing Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja!
  11. Usually I enter every contest in the LEGO Club Magazine, except if I’m too late or real busy with something else.
  12. I enjoy reading comics, but I hate reading books! :|
  13. I’ve been to several different countries including Turkey, Mexico, Cyprus, and Germany (but just to the airport).
  14. My family and I visited or drove through at least 23 states, maybe more!
  15. I’m slowly working on learning Spanish – it’s difficult to learn a new language!
  16. I’ve been to Hershey Park and I want to go to LEGOLAND California!
  17. I visited the Grand Canyon National Park and a few other National Parks.
  18. My favorite sports are football and basketball! I like to stay active and play outside.
  19. I like the Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Heat, and the New York Yankees! (A lot of people say I’m a front-runner.)
  20. I love having Nerf Gun battles with my friends! :roll:
  21. Usually I go to the beach in New Jersey for vacation! (I love the beach! Except for the sand…)
  22. I’ve have started contributing at theBrickBlogger when I was just a KFOL (Kid-Fan-of-LEGO).
  23.  My favorite post at TBB is LEGO Ninjago Lloyd ZX Spinner Preview!
  24. I like writing about my hobbies – which are, obviously, Ninjago and LEGO!
  25. I especially enjoy writing for theBrickBlogger!

And one more thing…

If you would like to contact me, I’m around theBrickBlogger often, so you can reach me through the comment section below or at my posts. I should answer within 48 hours! ;)

Hey admin,

Just wondering what theme you use for TBB? I’m looking for a great theme for my blog, one that is really good and this one you use is awesome! ;)


admin February 19, 2013 at 8:32 PM

I use Thesis. It is one of the most advanced themes available with built in SEO features and a streamlined platform that doesn’t bog down your server, or require you to edit core WP code. It is not a free theme though. If I remember correctly it was like $100 a couple of years ago when I bought it. I use the original version, not the recently released 2.0 that is available now. That one is way too hard to use for beginners and require quite a bit of coding knowledge. Skins will be added later to 2.0, so it may be worth to wait until they get added.


ntk743 February 19, 2013 at 8:52 PM

Okay. I was hoping it was free


admin February 19, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Yeah, if you want a really good theme you will have to pay. But there are many decent free themes out there as well. Just have to keep trying out a few. :)

You know HTML? I’m an advanced HTML and CSS coder. I also know a bit of JavaScript…. :D


admin November 2, 2013 at 4:30 PM

I just know pretty basic stuff to keep thsi website going. But I wouldn’t be comfortable developing my own theme or something like that. However I like Thesis because it has pretty much infinite options without messing with the core WP code.


ntk743 February 20, 2013 at 7:53 PM

One more thing… I was wondering how you add all the LEGO links and images to the sides of your blog?


admin February 20, 2013 at 8:43 PM

The image boxes I made myself using pictures I found on LEGO’s website. Upload them, then just add a link leading to the appropriate page on LEGO’s website. Different themes handle the sidebars differently, but you should be able to activate a widget or something on yours to do something similar.


ntk743 February 21, 2013 at 5:55 PM

Thanks! I figured it out!


ntk743 February 22, 2013 at 2:33 PM

Is the categories at the top like LEGO Ninjago from Menus?


admin February 22, 2013 at 5:31 PM

Yes, it is beascially the same thing; just some of the most popular sections of the site. I didn’t use the menus though but created custom links to them. ;)

Nice to meet you ntk743! I’m Meneldur from the realm of Andoras, a made-up land I created. My real name is Jon and I’m a fan of Lego and have been since I was five (I’m now fourteen). Since you love Lego video games, have you played the Lord of the Rings one? Did you hear about the Lego Marvel Heroes video game coming out?


ntk743 May 10, 2013 at 8:53 AM

Hi, no I have not played the LOTR video game yet and I did hear about Marvel Super Heroes game! ;)

admin December 14, 2013 at 9:28 AM

So, I guess I should update that sentence in your bio?


ntk743 December 17, 2013 at 1:18 PM



ntk743 February 21, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Admin, I have a new blog just about me and I’m a tfol now so if you could maybe make those changes


admin February 21, 2014 at 2:07 PM

I will. I have to go out now, but I should be able to do it this evening. :)
