My Other Sites

Well, the sites described below are still “coming soon.” Their go-live dates are awaiting God’s timing, so I won’t be offering specific dates. I’ll just say, I’m pretty sure they’ll all be worth the wait.

MyDadsBook.com
(this link will be live just as soon as the site is ready)

My father, James B. Cudd, wrote prolifically — and usually very well. But he wasn’t good about filing his stuff, and most of it was never published. Consequentially, when he died in April 2014, he left the world thousands of disorganized pages filled with random notes, letters, articles, poems, essays, reviews, whatever. Much of it is brilliant. All of it is a mess.

The one thing Dad never wrote was a book. (Unless you count his  master’s degree thesis, an enlightening study of recidivism, which I can’t find at the moment.) So, it now falls on me to compile all Dad’s best stuff into something publishable like that. The first step to that is MyDadsBook.com, Dad’s posthumous blog where I will post his best writing as I find it and let you have at it, dear reader. As the world becomes familiar with Dad’s bit of brilliance through that site, I’m confident his book will spring forth naturally.

 West Brazos Journal
(this link will be live just as soon as the site is ready)

I will soon be experimenting with the concept of Christian journalism by covering local news in the three-city area in which I live, West of the Brazos River in Brazoria County, Texas.

 HossTheBoss.com
(this link will be live just as soon as the site is ready)

From 2006 – 2012, I ran an incredibly amateurish, but surprisingly popular internet radio station out of my spare bedroom. The station featured independent bands of all types from across the United States and the world. It was fun. I miss it. I had to stop because, well, it was taking just too much of my time and creating zero revenue. Ever since I turned the station off, I’ve been thinking of how to revive it — profitably this time. My plan is now in place. It’s just a matter of me finding the time to carry it out. God willing, Hoss is returning soon.

Brazoria County Tennis
(this link will be live just as soon as the site is ready)

I may be one  of the more enthusiastic tennis enthusiasts you’ll know. When I  moved to Brazoria County, Texas in 2013, I was just looking for some new tennis buddies in my new local, and I ended up as the leader of a group that’s restarting the Brazoria County Tennis Association. We’re looking to start hosting tournaments, youth camps, beginner lessons for adults and kids alike, leagues, and all the rest. Oh yeah, and we’re going to have to start doing something about maintaining all these public courts that cities and school districts tend to forget they have around these parts.  In the meantime, I play in as many leagues and tournaments as I can, I’m the coach of the fledgling team at Brazosport Christian School, and I’m even starting to get requests from parents who want me to teach their kids (or even themselves) to play.

I have a lot to say about tennis in our area (and tennis in general), and I know a lot of other people who do to. So, watch out. Our new website is coming soon. God willing, of course.
