Bardo Slawff

… is a pen name.

A little bit of an honest moment here, I have had some bad lived experiences in the past with personal identity and being too transparent online.

I am deliberately posting content that I hope will not be too controversial or overtly offensive.

One can never be certain about what might offend, of course. After all the Cast Iron Guy blog is as much a personal writing exercise as it is anything else. It is a way for me to write and share and project a positive vibe to the universe. But offense is a tricky thing, and saying that I am keenly aware that I have people in my life both personally and professionally who may take offense at the very idea of me simply having the space to post anything at all.

I just don’t want a simple Google search for my real name by one of those folks to derail this project.
