After toiling in the darkest corners of the internet I have finally made it to the big time —but while the Times Union’s web site is a new forum I’m not exactly new to the blogosphere.
For several years I wrote about local media on a blog called Albany Eye. After its Hindenburg-like demise I decided to take a little vacation from online living.
I later launched Keyboard Krumbs, mostly just to amuse myself and several hundred of my closest friends. Thanks to Times Union blogmeister Michael Huber those posts may now be found here, so you can spend all day reading about things like dog poop, the random nature of life, and women’s shoes. I have also been an occasional contributor to the TU’s Bethlehem Blog, Albany County’s favorite spot for hurling anonymous comments at your neighbors.Â
Please join meÂ as I write about family life, current events, the media and other fascinating stuff.

Hey Rob, welcome. Sweet to have you here! It only took three years to get you to sign up, but that’s ok.
Now that Matt Baumgartner has left our TU blog-o-sphere, I’m (sort of) looking forward to my first wince moment on this blog. ~~ Mike
You are so right about the Bethlehem Blog!” OMG! That is hilarious!!!!
So glad to see you with your own blog on the TU!!!
So, were you also Nigel Bly?
Rob, though I don’t have any kids yet, the story about your Son in Zombieland was funny. Looking forward to more good stories!
Good to see you here. Are you going to keep Keyboard Krumbs in parallel, or should we who link there send our pointers here instead?
I don’t know if I ever told you this . . . but back in Albany Eye heyday, I received a series of fairly inflammatory e-mails from some on-air and production folks at a certain local radio station (that I shan’t name here) accusing me of being you.
While I threatened them with slander and libel and all sort of other legal recriminations if they made such statements about me publicly without being able to back them up, I have to admit to feeling a bit flattered that they thought me capable of producing such good stuff.
So glad to have you on the interwebs without your disguise!
