About Me

Hi there! I’m Tom Blagden. I’m 25 years old and I work in the television industry in Manchester, where I’ve lived since 2010. In my spare time you can usually find me watching films, editing videos or playing video games, but from time to time I enjoy going outside too.

Likes: Dogs, indie rock, cheese.

Dislikes: Slow computers, tidying up, the sound of brooms on patio tiles.

About This Site

I’ve always thought of myself as a creative person but between my 9 to 5, my girlfriend and various time-consuming hobbies, I’ve let my output slide quite a bit in the last few years. I’ve been getting the itch lately to stretch my writing muscles a bit more, and to share what I write with other people. Blog By Blagden* is a home for my thoughts on the things I love: movies, music, games, books, food, travel, tech, and anything else I find interesting. I also plan to post some longer-form pieces of writing that I might call ‘essays’ if I wanted to make myself sick.

If you like something I’ve written then feel free to leave a comment, or to contact me directly here or on Twitter. I hope you find something you enjoy!

*I wanted to call this site ‘Blogden’s Blag’ but every SEO guide I’ve ever read has lead me to believe it’s a bad idea to misspell my own name in the title of my blog. Go figure.
