What inspired you to start blogging?

It came to me in a dream. A woman’s voice whispered to me: “Why don’t you do something useful while you’re looking for work? And could you pop in to CVS tomorrow and buy one of those baby snot suckers? Thanks love.”

What makes your blog stand out?

English Dad was the first blog to recognize baby jumping as a sport. It’s also the only blog that features a one-eyed Chihuahua named Derek. And finally, it’s brutally honest. Except for the tiny dog thing.

What are three adjectives that describe your blog?

What are you doing when you're not blogging?

When I am not at work, I am teaching my son how to say “duck.” One day we will succeed, although it's unlikely to be any day soon. For exercise, I play football (the proper one) and I pay a monthly membership fee to not go to the gym. Otherwise, I hang out as much as possible with my beautiful wife and kid in the best city on Earth. Although I should probably mention that I have yet to visit Boise, Idaho.
