|Sooner or later, I'm going to get this right!
I launched The Temple Gate in early August of
2004, as part of an overall plan to get out of the Earthlink/Trellix
world and into Blogger and my own
site. The "my own site" part has worked out great ($6.95
U.S. for the forst three months, and about $60 for the year, at SurfSpeedy).
But Blogger has been a big disappointment.
This caused me to think deeply: Wither The
Temple Guy? And I realized that I am not as interested in blogging
as I am in page-building. If I ever hit the road again, I may
blog, but as long as I am using my own computer, with FrontPage,
PhotoShop, and other inappropriately capitalized programs, it's probably
smarter for me to just post a letter
from time to time (to keep folks updated) and to keep a
running list of new pages posted. That should keep me busy.
So, in the interest of history, here is a list
of my old The Temple Gate entries; please read about my
slightly-longer-lived The Barefoot
Goodbye, blogging, hello: The UNBLOG!
The old header:
This is the new home for the blog of the man widely-known as "The Barefoot Fool."
Like that blog, this one will continue to chronicle "the mental and geographical wanderings of a seeker after wisdom and foolishness"--but with a greater emphasis on matters of
ultimate importance, while retaining a fair dose of monkeyshines.
PLEASE NOTE: I have not attempted to reproduce
the style of the original here. I have also omitted the links to the Gate
entries, as these can now be found in the Article indices starting here.
Or Search The
Temple Guy. The old Gate entries are kept for historical interest
only. (Someday I may add the links, but definitely not now.)
