Around a year ago a friend of mine joked that I should start a blog called Alex Blogker, a play on my surname. The purpose of the blog was to be a safe and secure place where I could tell all my terrible jokes in the knowledge that absolutely no one would find them, thus providing a service to humanity.
Whilst there will in all likelihood be some terrible puns on here (after all I doubt I’ll be able to resist completely), Alex Blogker will be mainly devoted to the things that interest me. Expect a fair amount of cultural and political history, left-wing politics, pedagogy, and moaning about Tottenham Hotspur and movies to lighten the mood.
I hope that this will be an enjoyable experience for me, a place where I can write about the things I want at longer length than on Twitter and in a less intrusive way to others’ lives than on Facebook. Who knows there might even be something on here that interests you!
I think I’ll end this as the Queen Mother used to end letters….
Tinkety tonk old fruit, and down with the Nazis.
