This ain't my first rodeo . . . er, I mean this isn't my first website.  I hate to see old work go neglected, however, so I decided I'd provide links to previous incarnations of my internet person.  

Smith's Blue Blog / Yup.  Puns.  Regardless, I maintained this blog from 2005 to 2009.  Whatever tickled my fancy had a tendency to end up there.  Worth a look-see. 

Hillbilly Savants / Maybe the coolest thing I've ever been a part of - a collective effort to blog about the history, art, politics, and culture of Appalachia from the perspective of the Appalachian Renaissance.  From 2006 to 2011 this project educated the masses - more than 400,000 visitors last time I checked.  My thanks to everyone involved, especially the other editors, my friends Vaughn W. Garland and Mike Mason.
