Irksy (Street Articles Author)

Hi my name is Ian and I'm here to write! Now, as unexpected as that was, I hope you can stay with me a little bit to find out what exactly I'm all about.

I've been interested in writing as a hobby for quite a while now but have never had the motivation to really attempt anything substantial. I've kept a journal and done some blogging but I've never really challenged myself as an writer.

By joining Street Articles, I'm hoping to accomplish several things here:

1). Challenge myself to become a better writer and person 2). Provide quality content on a consistent basis 3). Engage my readers with interesting and useful articles

I'll largely be focusing on my main hobbies which are health and fitness, video gaming and reading. As I become more comfortable with writing on a daily basis, I will push myself to delve into other topics in order to provide a wide variety of interesting topics.

That's about everything I can think of and I'd like to thank you for checking this out! If you ever have any questions, comments, or feedback, feel free to leave something in the comments section or on my twitter and facebook pages.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!
