About The Boy Behind The Blog

Just in case it wasn’t obvious, I’m Josh.

I’m a 25-year-old gay from Northern Ireland with a Swedish boyfriend and a love for stories. I started JustJosh in 2008 mainly because I was bored and wanted something to pass the time. In the last nine years, I’ve redesigned it countless times and started from scratch more than I’d like to admit to.

The blog doesn’t have a niche or some grand design I’m aiming for; I write whatever the hell I want to. I guess if I had to summarise it, I would call it an autobiographical memoir interspersed with articles on topics which mean something to me.

You’ll find a little bit of everything here. Anecdotes, ramblings, activism, philosophical musings, quivering blokes, hopes and dreams, and hopefully a good dose of wit and sarcasm.

The plan is to look back in 50 years through a haze of senility and recall fond memories. It’s that simple really.

Thanks for reading, it means the world.
