Good evening and welcome to the launch of It’s A Stampede!, my brand new pop culture and entertainment blog. My name is Alex Wiggan and if you happen to read The Honcho-SFX blog (and you really should) then you may already be familiar with my work.

I’m launching this blog as a personal project and over the coming days/weeks/years* (*please delete as applicable) I aim to fill it with various news pieces, stories and features from the world of pop culture/entertainment. This blog will have a pretty informal style, but rest assured that doesn’t mean I’ll only be updating it when I’m at a loose end – far from it, I plan to update frequently.

I’m still in the process of setting up the blog at present, so if you notice a few changes from time-to-time, please try not to get too distracted. Once the dust settles, and I’ve got into the swing of things, I’m pretty confident you and I will be spending a lot of time together.

To help It’s A Stampede! to bed in, so to speak, I will shortly be kicking off a series of daily posts titled: ‘On this day in geekdom’. The first post will appear shortly after this one and will then be followed by 364 additional posts which will crop up over the course of the coming year!

I told you I was committed to this blog.

If you really want to get a feel for what It’s A Stampede! is all about, then look to the ‘On this day in geekdom’ posts for guidance. They should give you an insight into the eclectic nature of my mind, which will be spilling onto this blog shortly.

Right, that’s enough for now. Once again, welcome to the blog.

Alex
