I’m 23 and I live in Bromley, South East London, having spent three years of living and studenting in Aberystwyth, West Wales. I now spend my days drinking tea, playing with my two cats Dexter and Sherlock, getting addicted to TV series and reading ridiculous amounts of books while listening to a huge variety of music.
I’m no newbie on the blogging scene. I set up my first blog when I was 15, which was more of an online diary for my friends to read. It was then that I realised that I really quite liked this writing thing and I started writing poetry and short stories. It wasn’t long after, when I discovered that journalism was what I wanted to do. With music being my biggest passion next to writing, it only stood to reason that music journalism is where I wanted to go. Fully aware that the competition in my chosen industry was ridiculous, I set up this blog where I could freely express my opinions and get some good practice. New and/or unsigned acts are who I’m most interested in, as they need the exposure as much as I do. It also means that I can introduce my readers to music I know they’ll never have heard before, which is something that excites me stupid amounts!
I also have a Tumblr blog at justsomealexkid.tumblr.com which consists of pictures, quotes and pretty much anything that interests and inspires me.
I’m a bit weird and shy but just give me a smile or nice comment and I’ll be your friend for life =)
Enjoy reading this blog cause I love writing it!
Love Alex x
