Meet The Blogger - Mike

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?

Hi I’m Mike (aka The Neu Dad) and I’m a 30 something dad blogger from Edinburgh but now living in SW London

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

We had our little boy Marley in summer 2016, not long after we’d moved down from Edinburgh. I’ve always been a writer, and I wanted to keep a kind of journal of our new life with Marley, especially for the benefit of family and friends back in Scotland. And it just kind of grew from there!

HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

Very much so. What began as essentially a diary has now become an excuse for me to write about ANYTHING through the perspective of a father

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

Hmm good question. When our boy pointed at a woman in the street wearing dark clothes and called her a pirate, that was pretty funny

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

When we had to get an ambulance for our boy in the middle of the night as his temperature rocketed. Thankfully, it turned out to be a non-serious infection that the medical staff were able to deal with promptly

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?

I guess it depends on what they want to achieve. My aim is to always try and tell interesting and humorous stories to try and ensure whoever reads them is entertained. That’s the easy part though. If you want to make money out of it, you’re going to need to do some serious reading….

WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?

How many other bloggers are out there!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

I love to read, write and spend time with family and friends. If I could do those things all day every day I’d be very happy!

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?

Hire a babysitter for the day so I could start spending!

WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?

I’m not sure I have a blogging hero, but Poppy Loves is a pretty incredible example of how to put together a great blog.

    Hiring a babysitter gave me a laugh! It makes sense but I can see a dad wanting to get a day off and be a one day millionaire. Nice to meet you, Mike!

    This is a nice read. It is nice to be able to read a parenting blog from a dad’s perspective. Mike sounds like he is enjoying every day with his son and documents every moment beautifully.
