Benvenuti, benvenido, bemvindos, bienvenue, fáilte, and … welcome

They’ve come. They’ve gone. They’ve informed, enlightened, and even made people cringe. They’ve gone by different monikers. From a guy named Fred, to the Patriot, to Twisted Tanner, and just plain old “Keith.”

The Peabody blogosphere has been up, down, and all around. And now, a new player emerges.

Welcome to my world. Won’t you come on in?

I’ve been a keen observer of past blogs and bloggers here in Peabody, and I have to say that I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly along the way. But in my opinion, the one major missing element has always been a lack of accountability.

Although some of these bloggers past have certainly been entertaining, they haven’t exactly been forthcoming. Well, ladies, gentlemen, and kids of all ages, I’m here to tell you that it’s time throw away all of the masks.

Past bloggers, for reasons known to them only, have created these forums anonymously. In doing so they’ve created some colorful characters and alternative personalities.

But all of that is over. It’s through. I’m the guy behind the keyboard. I’m the one accountable for everything that’s written here, and I hope it’s something that lends more credibility to what I feel could be a very useful and effective forum of ideas, commentary, and … entertainment.

We definitely want to inform with this new blog venture. But come on, folks, let’s also not take ourselves too seriously.

I’m not Fred or the Patriot or the Tanner, or even the Outfront Guy. Welcome to the new Peabody blogosphere, where transparency rules.

Of course, you can still feel free to be anonymous, so let the characters return to post comments that I’m sure will be informative, make you think, and be zany all at the same time.

Welcome to my world. Let me know how I’m doing. Wake the neighbors. Tell the kids.

There’s new blog sheriff in town.

    welcome to the fray Batman….perhaps you have heard of me before? ah yes, it is the one and only Outfront Guy….perhaps you have seen some wannabes on the local cable channels who have adopted my old moniker (eg Outfront with Erin Burnett on CNN -what a hottie !)…so it is good to be on the local Peabody blogging scene…let’s hope that chatter stays civil and enlightening…..things are a bit less controversial now since Teflon Ted is at the helm and he seems to have Dark City under control unlike his controversial predecessors but we can always talk about the schools and downtown!! Rumor has it we are going to build a new middle school…will this actually happen before OG heads to Rosewood?

    It’s official, ladies and gentlemen. The EOP blog is now credible. The legendary Outfront Guy has joined the fray!
