Welcome aboard! Glad to have you. I am known to you as The Codger. This blog is filled with my thoughts on life. It is strictly non-commercial. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is an excerpt from my first article, which explains the origins of this blog in greater detail:
Why, hello there. Where to begin…Well, I consider myself to be a pretty computer savvy guy. I’ve probably been using my computer since before most of you were born. My all-time favorite programs include Quicken, Weather Bug, Mac, and A.I.M. (AOL Instant Messenger). I even designed the graphic for this column myself—I bet you couldn’t tell! Anyhow, I’ve decided to set sail and join the ranks of dot-com upstarts everywhere by launching my first “blog”. It’s what is known in the business as a lifestyle column. I, for one, think it’s delightful to see a Web page expanding beyond teenagers by reaching out to the growing audience of baby boomers and senior citizens. Exciting stuff, “write”? Happy to have you all on board! You can call me The Codger.
I know what you’re thinking: You’ve been let down in the past by media big-shots like Woodward and Bernstein. We all were. Dear readers, you have my deepest assurances that I intend to work together with you to make this column a success by discussing the issues that matter in our lives. Who knows, maybe we’ll become a modern day Algonquin Round Table, with me as your all-powerful leader. But for that to happen, be sure to post your own ideas in the comments section. I pledge to give them my fullest consideration.
