Hi, I’m Tom Earnshaw, and this is my blog!

I’m 24-years-old. I graduated from Newcastle University in 2013 with a Bachelors of Art in Politics (2:1). From there I worked in the gambling industry until the summer of 2016, where I gave up full-time employment to go after what I really want to be involved with in life; journalism.

Therefore, since September 2016 I have been studying towards a Masters of Arts in Journalism at the University of Central Lancashire.

Journalism is critical to how the many channels in our society function; whether that’s through holding those in power to account or producing culturally immersive content.

This blog will showcase my journalistic passions, with content varying between culture, current affairs, and sport. So don’t be surprised to see one post about a political topic in the news and  another about Manchester United!

I was once told to follow two rules when it comes to writing:

  1. Would anyone want to read this?
  2. Would you be OK with your mum reading this?

So with that in mind, I will make sure content stays contemporary, fresh, and interesting to you, the reader.

Take care, and happy reading!
