Facebook tweaks its algorithm and suddenly nobody sees yours posts anymore. Pinterest fiddles with its feed and your referrals go from 1,000 to 100. It’s no longer good enough to be excellent on 1 social platform; you need to be working them all. Social Media Optimisation Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, G+, Twitter all at once? Yes, […]

At the weekend, I did something that I found really scary. I am the Queen of Self Doubt, but hell, sometimes it’s good to put yourself out there. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” to quote Susan Jeffers. I spoke at a blogging conference about working with brands. Now, I am no expert at […]
I’ve just published my first ever book. It’s called A modern father (…and dad blogger) and it focuses on my life as a stay at home dad. As the title suggests, however, I couldn’t resist writing just a little about being a dad blogger. Getting the book into print has taken over my life and […]
Hello January and hello new bloggers. January is traditionally the month of ‘taking up new things’ resolutions and fresh starts. If you’ve started a blog; hello and welcome to the world of blogging. How are you finding it? It can be a little overwhelming at first, technically and simply by the sheer numbers of blogs […]
Google+ continues to be one of the most powerful tools in the blogger’s arsenal. It helps with your SEO, connects to your YouTube channel, markets your content and can even help you monetise (yes, really). At BritMums Live 2015, James Dearsley will be returning to present Advanced Google+, a session on how to go beyond […]
It’s a new year, but I’m going to kick off this dad blogger round up with an old favourite; Frozen. I don’t know about you, but I am staggered by the runaway success of this Disney blockbuster. Even so, it is easy to understand why it has proved so popular. My kids both love it, […]
This month’s dad blog round up is not what I planned. I was going to trawl the Internet for blog posts all about Christmas. To my surprise, I struggled to find any. For whatever reason, us dad bloggers just don’t seem to be in the Christmas spirit yet! In the absence of Christmas-themed blogs, here […]
It all kicked off with Oreos. Several popular vloggers were sent biscuits and, working with Oreo, challenged their viewers to an Oreo lick race. The resulting content has prompted the Advertising Standards Agency to respond. The ASA has put out a statement reiterating that online content advertising or promoting a product or service needs to […]
The one in which I discuss vlogging, via the medium of a vlog and proves that if I have the technical skills to make a video and put it on Youtube, anyone can. Starts well…. the end, not so much.
Us dad bloggers can be a reflective bunch. Over the past few weeks I’ve seen quite a few blog posts from dads pondering deeply on various things they have done or experienced. The time of year lends itself to reflection. With all the Remembrance Day commemorations I’ve spent a lot of time explaining the complexities […]
Should you drive traffic to your YouTube channel? On the face of it, that’s seems like an easy question. Of course! Especially since video is increasingly becoming a platform and outlet that wields influence and increasingly reaches the people you want to. The long road to video We’ve been thinking about video for quite a […]
Last month I turned down probably one of the best opportunities I’ve been approached with as a blogger. My preference word to cover blogging trips/product reviews/working with brands etc is ‘opportunity’. I can’t bear it, when people suggest bloggers get things for ‘free’. Nothing is free. I am an influencer, with an engaged audience. I […]
What do you get if you take a psychotherapist, two stay at home dads, one of whom likes to write about feminism and a dad that has a thing for laundry bleach? You get the dad bloggers that feature in this month’s round up, that’s what. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a real autumnal mix. […]

Go on, admit it; you loved spending time with the kids over the summer holidays. It was, nonetheless, time for them to go back to school wasn’t it? I know I’m not the only one to feel this way. I’ve seen loads of blog posts from mums and dads who are either relaxing or spring […]
As a blogger, do you constantly feel like you are on a rollercoaster? Love it one minute, dislike it the next? Jessica Soothill, from mummy of boy girl twins wants to find out. One minute I just LOVE blogging; I feel empowered by sitting down to write words that people read and comment upon, and message […]
This blogging thing has taken me to some weird and wonderful places over the last couple of years. The most unexpected, however, would be the back of a Hackney carriage in Central Paris. This is where I spent last Tuesday, a guest of the French men’s fashion retailer Celio*. I was there for two reasons: […]
I have a confession, in August I am the worst blogger. Does anyone blog in August? Of course, they do. Don’t they? Having largely failed to visit other blogs (as a good blogger should) I’ve very little idea. Is anyone reading this? *knocks on screen*. I’m rubbish at blogging in August. It’s my ‘slow’ month, […]
