Welcome to The Backyard Poet
In my never-ending quest to show the world my foolish attempts at creativity, I have decided to join the blogging community with my new blog site ‘The Backyard Poet’. I know what you’re thinking. But Jerry, the river of information we call the internet is already jammed full and with so many blog sites out there now it’s dang near impossible to navigate it. Yet, here I am adding my two cents to the congestion anyway. But hey, the way I figure it, it really doesn’t cost you (as a reader) a thing. For me, it will only take a little more of my time and we all know that’s just about the only thing I can afford. I’m too old to do anything else anyway, so I might as well be pestering you. Besides, it’s another way for me to push my opinions onto an innocent and unsuspecting world.
So if you just washed your hair and there’s nothing on TV then jump on your phone, tablet or whatever device suits your fancy and go to www.thebackyardpoet.com to see what all the fuss is about. If you don’t find anything of value well, ‘No Harm No Foul’. Just maybe you’ll like what you see though. If so, sign up for the newsletter so you won’t miss out on anything. I would hate to see some great words of wisdom wasted. We all know there are a few things that I am full of and I don’t think they smell like wisdom.
Well friends, it’s been exactly two years since this first post proclaimed that I would be the next great thing to hit the blogging world. As I go back through the archives, I see that I had a few moments when my mind was lucid enough to put together a few readable words. I guess I thought at the time that age would let me slow down a bit and enjoy a quieter life of writing, reading and sticking my nose into everyone’s business. Alas, sad to say, that the problem with getting older is, although there is less to do it takes twice as long to do it.
Now I’m not going to promise you that I’m going to set the blogging world on fire, but I will promise to give it a better try. So thanks for sticking around my friends.
