I have been blogging for several years, first on a blogspot blog that I opened up and used for my own amusement. For a while, I was one of the founding members of the Orlando Sentinel blog site, Hypeorlando, and used that as my soap box after my weekly column in the Sentinel, which had run on Sundays for nearly 25 years, was shut down due to the continual contraction of printed newspapers.

Now, I have taken the plunge, well and truly. I have obtained my own personal domain, rtbosshardt.com, along with a WordPress blog. I have put my money where my mouth (or pen, or whatever you call it in these electronic days) is, to the tune of a whopping $108 for a two year commitment. Now, I confront the most daunting challenge any writer can face- an empty page. What do I have to say that is worth the reader’s time to read? Time will tell. I hope you will join me on this next adventure. It will be interesting to see if I fly, or crash and burn. Either way, it should be entertaining.

I am a plastic surgeon, in practice for 30 years, with varied interests. First and foremost is writing. I love to observe people, who are endlessly fascinating. I have interests in health and wellness, our environment, modern culture, history, and general medical matters. I was "born to run" and love long distance running. I have a Christian worldview which infuses everything I do. I hope this blog will be interesting, entertaining, informative, and, perhaps, even a little controversial. If I can get one person to delve more deeply into something I have said, I will have been successful.
