The Bloggard is a sensitive and caring kind of guy, and, like Boston Blackie, he is ‘the Friend of those who have no Friends.’ Yeah, that’s what the Bloggard is like.
You may have known some of the Bloggard’s distant relatives, Drunkard, Braggard, and Sluggard. But the Bloggard is much nicer than they, yes he is.
Although I was born as ‘Richard French,’ as of 1984 (when I changed my name) I’m Arthur Cronos, and as a musician I’m known as Traktor Topaz. On this weblog you can learn how I became Traktor and much more.
These days I’m the chief marketing engineer for Voltos Automatic Selling Systems, but previously I played (and buil5) a touch-style instrument called the Mobius Megatar, and I’ve written some books (music, marketing, and romance) which you’ll find described on Powerline Press.
Powerline press is the publisher of “The Sweetheart Method: Get a Girlfriend … Guaranteed!” and you can learn more about this surprisingly effective method online at The Sweetheart Report. (On that site you’ll also find ShyGuy’s How to Get a Girlfriend Blog, a series of articles on dating and romance.)
I think weblogs (blogs) are wonderful, in fact a profound revolution in publishing, as grand as the invention of the book. Further, I think that a certain eloquence in writing is emerging, and a swing from the slang era back to a type of personal journalism that we’ve not seen since a “person of letters” was respected. Blogging is also changing the way we navigate the web, for it permits following the chain of simpatico people with common interests rather than simply searching a subject. There’s a difference.
Back in 2002, I predicted that blogging would grow like topsy. Just as web-enabled computers became servers all around the world, so I expected the open-source weblog (a “blog“) to be the application riding atop the wave, making the presentation of personal history, perspective, and humor a part of the common human experience. And, sure enough, this is happening.
In this blog, The Adventures of Bloggard, I will sometimes chat about my projects; sometimes present views about our world, and sometimes share snippets of what I think is wisdom. But mostly you’ll find stories. You’ll find humor, and memories of people and places now far away. In short, micro-stories about people and what happened to them in Texas and Belgium and China, and events ranging from Henrietta, Texas to Paris and San Francisco, and into the mountains of Northern California.
Thank you for joining me.
