The editor of this blog is me, Ian Bridge.Photograph of blog editor, Ian Bridge

I am a professional writer and a member of the Chartered Institute of Journalist. Writing is embedded into my nature, it’s something I just ‘do’ and I’m equally at home penning technical manuals and commercial copywriting as doing journalistic work such as magazine features or sports reporting.

This blog will give you a flavour of my capabilities and my work; whether it’s the informal style of the blog itself or the samples of my published and commercial work, which can be found under the Services tab.

The blog is an expression of my own personal views on life and in particular the sports I’m most interested in. Whilst that is predominantly rugby league, I reserve the right to mention other passions such as Baseball and American Football, though rarely soccer, which ‘ain’t what it used to be’.

”I love the drama and passion of sport; the way that frozen moments capture and amplify the human condition,” Ian says. “Those magic moments are the things I most enjoy writing about, the things I strive to capture and portray in every article.”

My published work has appeared in many publications, including but not limited to:

  • The Daily Express,
  • The Daily Mirror,
  • League Express,
  • Rugby League World,
  • Golf Today,
  • Rugby World,
  • The Non-League Weekly,
  • Chorley Guardian,
  • Widnes Weekly News,
  • teamtalk.com,
  • rleague.com.

An ITSMF/ITIL accredited Service management consultant, I have undertaken consulting and commercial writing projects for many major companies including:

  • Capita
  • Xansa
  • BT
  • Barclays
  • Co-operative Bank
  • Orange
  • Dun and Bradstreet
  • Martin Dawes Systems

  • Nature writing (most recently on the plight facing the bumble bee)
  • Technology (most recently on RFID technology)
  • Sports (a regular contributor to League Express)
