Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste. No, no, sorry. That was the opening line of Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones. Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m Ben. Not the devil. Nor am I Mick Jagger.
If you are here I’m assuming that you have clicked the “About,” button on my website and therefore won’t mind me indulging in a little bit of autobiographical content. We all know to assume is to make an ass of u and me, but I’m happy to be an ass. I’ve been called worse. No, really.
One of those names coincidentally begins with the letter W and while working out how to go about creating an about page I decided the best way to fill in this little bio of my own creation is to focus on five W based prompts about this little blog. Who, what, where, when and why.
Who: I am the who (no, not the band). Don’t get fooled again.
What: This is primarily a travel blog, however you’ll probably have noticed already that tangents are a big part of my writing. Don’t be surprised to see posts about things such as baking, football and The Eurovision Song Contest pop up here from time to time.
Where: The major question when it comes to a travel blog. The where will be places I’ve been to and places I want to go to. Maybe even venturing into the murky waters of places I don’t want to go to and ones I’ve been less than impressed with when I have visited them on my travels. If you’re looking for a tennis match between “everything is amazing,” and heavy cynicism then in the words of Wham! “I’m your man.” Heavy Cynicism sounds like a boxer from a Rocky movie incidentally. Yo Adrian, there’s another tangent.
When: Well now of course…
Why: I love to travel and I love to write. Bring them together and you have a marriage of sorts, the niche market that nobody has dared try to enter until now. The travel blog. What? Somebody already did it? Too late now I’ve paid actual money for a domain name. I guess I’ll just join the party fashionably late in that case!
