What inspired you to start blogging?

I never really knew what a blog was until I heard stories last fall about a friend of my wife who is a successful mom/fashion blogger. After meeting and talking with Audrey McLellan, writer of Mom Generations, at a Christmas party, I got hooked on the idea. It was all history from there. I have always had a love of reading and writing. The blog was the perfect place for me to express myself in a very easy and personal format. I thought my life was interesting enough to give it a shot and I have enjoyed it ever since.

What makes your blog stand out?

I think my blog is unique in that it encompasses a ton of diverse subject matters. I'm a guy/father who is into a million different things, many of them a little out of the ordinary. For instance, I make my own snow, pick and eat wild plants, make my own backyard maple syrup, sail, ski, ride bicycles seriously, fish, am a cancer fighter/fundraiser, etc. I do most of these activities with my kids, with a focus on bringing them up to truly love the things that they do. I try to bring the same passion I have for all of my life activities into my blog writing, and I hope that helps me to stand out!

What are three adjectives that describe your blog?

1. Wacky
2. Fun
3. Unboring (The kind of word you might find on my blog!)
