Hello World (Doggone You)!

Well, here I am once again with this automatically generated post from WordPress.  Back over on Old Time Blues, I had the perfect little piece of history to fill the space under that “Hello World” header, but this time around I suppose I have no other choice than to just shoot the bull a little while…

(Nevertheless, “Old Man” Henderson will still help to ring in the new era.)

Firstly, allow me to introduce myself.  As you may infer from those nifty looking letters emblazoned so boldly up above, my name is R.C. Montgomery—or Connor Montgomery, as most who know me would call me, but the former sounds more literary.  I am the writer (a word I choose carefully over “webmaster” because I cannot guarantee that the site won’t fall apart at any moment) responsible for creating this website, which I intend to function as my personal publishing platform (blogs they call ’em these days) for whatever writings and possibly inane, possibly insane ramblings I should happen to produce; to provide myself with a space to polish up my writing skills, to promote myself professionally, and to espouse what few opinions I care strongly enough about to share.  Here on my eponymous website, you may expect to find writings on the subjects of history, beautiful beautiful Texas, probably some musical matters that don’t fit in on Old Time Blues, perhaps a bit relating to my rather esoteric sense of fashion (or esoteric sense of most anything else, for that matter), and anything else I might care to publicly announce.  Should you read this site, you will surely come to better know and understand the man behind Old Time Blues.  May God help you.

As previously stated, I was—and am—responsible for creating and curating Old Time Blues, which (at the time of publication) hosts more than three hundred, and counting, antique phonograph records and the histories thereof.  When I first created Old Time Blues, it was intended to more-or-less fulfill the same purpose as this site—to feature both the records and any other manner of content that should happen to spring from my fingertips—but as time went by it evolved into its sole purpose as the digital repository of 78 RPM phonograph records that it is today, and I think it’s better that way.  But it left me bereft of the personal soapbox that I had intended.  This new site however, what with it bearing my own name for its title, will most certainly be both soapier and boxier than Old Time Blues ever could’ve been.  As a result of that, lacking such a clearly defined format or mission statement, I can guarantee that postings here will be much fewer and farther between than over there.  But hopefully, whatever may be lacking in quantity will be made up for in quality.

Now, I suppose I needn’t say much more, so if you’ve read this far, I thank you for your attention, and, as I have now reached the conclusion of this new beginning, as parting words I must once again regurgitate that immortal utterance from “Old Man” Henderson:

Hello world, doggone ya. Now don’t you go away!
