Should you be concerned when you have more blogs than children? I guess the question hangs on a) how many children you have and b) how many blogs. So if the answer is two and three is that a problem?
Because this is my little one, my youngest. The spare to my heirs.
It’s also brand new, and as a result in the perilous stages of life. It is my job to nuture it, feed it and hope that within a few years I can keep it from pooping it’s trousers.
So why start another blog?
Having two little dinosaurs takes up a lot of time, and I spend a huge chunk of my time travelling betwixt buildings in a vain attempt to earn money to feed them. Over the last year this seems to have been the daily slog of life. It has been personally rewarding, but not creatively.
I spend all day building reports and spreadsheets and have lost the ability to be spontaneous, this is another attempt to find an outlet other than staring at another TV show and watching 16 episodes in one weekend. I have eight seasons of Ru Paul’s drag Race, it is a life I want…but is it the life I should lead?
I also want to celebrate being a parent, or at the least share the fun I have. I’m told that I’m a walking advert for not having them but I feel that non-parents don’t get that the irritations are like nappy rash…skin deep and can be salved by a little air and cream.
I love being a dad, and I know Mrs G loves being a mom. A large reason for my long writers block is because I was having fun. Children are, and should be, fun. For every morning I get woken at five by A-Rex pooping himself it gives me an hour of playing FIFA with him. By playing this is simply passing him a controller and letting him believe that chewing the joystick is scoring with Messi.
So this is my latest attempt at this, and already 300% more successful than the previous attempts (RIP notsafeforchildren.com and dinoparents.com).
