About Me

Salutations!  I want to sincerely thank you for visiting my website.  Yes it is a blog, however I consider my little blog a website, because I plan to do more than just give you my opinion on peanut butter vs jelly.  But don’t worry, there will plenty of opinions shared through this medium.

Who is FreeStateMents?

That’s the million dollar question.  Who is this guy?

Well, I am a man that was born & raised in the great state of Maryland.  And while I have lived in several other states in my lifetime, I will always consider Maryland to be home.  I think its a great place to live.  In fact, my avatar is the Maryland State Flag.  I use it as a graphic illustration of my state pride.  That’s all.

The FreeStateMents moniker came from my Twitter username, which is just a play on the term “The Free State”.

Yeah yeah yeah, but who am I really?

The Man Behind the Mask

The irony of explaining who I am on a personal blog leaves me bemused, but I’ll play ball.

I am a guy that enjoys learning all sorts of interesting and wonderful things.  And those opportunities can be found in books, everyday life, and the people around us.  The fun part is uncovering the lesson.

As you can plainly see, I am also a lover of words.  Now, I do speak plainly in my daily life & I have no problem with that…it’s just that I like to speak well at times also.  Therefore, there may be a few more SAT terms sprinkled through my text than you’ll care for.  But don’t be angry with me because I’m not showing off; I’m just indulging in my passion.

I also enjoy sports, reading the paper, and spinning yarns about all kinds of crazy unusual stuff.  That kind of thing makes my day!  And my aim is that these tales will entertain you too.

Why So Private?

Ah!  Good question.

Look, I’m not the tin-foil hat type NOR am I on the run as a fugitive from justice.  I simply feel the need to protect my identity.  My deal is that I don’t even like taking pictures too tough, but I don’t refuse family & friends.  Truthfully, I like my life as it is – and I see no need in complicating things by throwing my identity into World Wide Web (how’s that for an archaic term?).  But I wanna play the game, so therefore I stick with the moniker.

Not to mention

  1. I can be totally honest in my writing
  2. It’s great for branding!



Okay folks.  By now, I am pretty sure that you get the picture.  Honestly, I didn’t expect to have this much to say on a stupid About Me page.  But if all of this doesn’t give you the skinny on who I am, then read the blog!


Thank You for Your Time & Attention,

    Hahahaha! Well Jerry, I would never call you a fool my friend. And I admit to having a genuine love of vocabulary. Believe me, I fully intend to scratch that itch.

    My mother used to say “fools names and fools faces always appear in public places.” Guess I’m a fool and you’re not. Looking forward to your SAT words!

    Nice tidbit about FreeStateMents – Man of Mystery…That is, if you are indeed a man! (Wouldn’t that be the ultimate in maintaining your privacy!) I look forward to reading more. I’m a lover of words myself, so if you can throw some GRE level ones in there as well, I would be much obliged.

      But we don’t want to scare off the townsfolk, now do we?
