It’s been a while since I had an actual website for myself. Remember those old GeoCities or Expage websites from 20orso years back? And how COOL it was to have your own website? Well, here it is!

My name is Cody Cutter of Sterling/Rock Falls – a part of “downstate” Illinois north and west of the southern limits of the Chicago metro area. I am a news and sports journalist, retired gas station cashier, local historian, 2005 Sterling High School graduate, 2010 Sauk Valley Community College graduate, Asperger’s Syndrome (Autism) warrior, big brother, little brother, single guy, human GPS system, baseball card collector and novice tourist.

Since my sophomore year of high school, I wanted to be a journalist. I’m still doing that. That’s been almost 20 years. I had been clerking at gas stations for 11. So I don’t like switching and switching. I’ve got a roof over my head, a car that runs, a family close to me, some money in the bank, and a sense of reality. About the only thing missing is that woman of my dreams, but that’s a long story.

However, such is the reason why I have a blog such as this. I’ve operated personal blogs from time to time, but could never update them often because of a busy work schedule. Likewise, this website keeps changing. I want to make this website like a public platform for people to get to know who I am and link them to my social media accounts.

Professionally, I am a news and sports journalist. Sports was my main forte for most of these years, but I have branched into doing more news stories and personality features. So you can read my high school sports work, and news and feature stories, on Shaw Media (Sauk Valley Media [news] [niche] & Friday Night Drive).

One of my interests over the years is baseball cards. I feel like I have many interesting takes on baseball cards, and will make this website a platform for blog posts about the many baseball cards I have with stories and interesting details.

I’m hopeful that the stories I post here on will give you a little info about myself, my past, my present, and my future.
