A couple of months ago a friend of mine suggested I start a dad blog. She felt that there are not enough fathers blogging and even less representation from black fathers. The idea seemed interesting and I went home excited. A few weeks went by and of course I did nothing. While I felt that I should give it a shot, I kept coming up with every reason in the world not to do this. I.e.: why would I want to share my life and my kids? why would someone even read this? my life is not that interesting, I cannot write (really I suck), anything you can think of I probably thought of it.
This morning I woke up and thought just do it. See how it goes, you will never know until you try right? and if you don’t like it you can delete it. It’s not like the Internet is forever right ?
So after reading a few “how to start a blog for newbies” articles. I now have a blog.
And who am I? you are probably thinking. (Actually at this point probably only my friends are reading this but whatever entertain me)
My name is Pierre-Richard (or Pierre for short unless you speak French and wont butcher it). I am 34 years old, I am married to an awesome woman that tolerates all my nonsense. I have 2 kids, a 3 and half year old boy and a 1 and half year old girl. I live in Toronto. I like sports, food, cars etc. all the typical things that a child my age likes. But enough about me for now.
About this blog, I am not yet sure what I want out of it and what it will become. So if you are reading this first thank you and second be patient, give me a chance and also be nice (pretty please). So yeah that’s all I have right now. I felt that I needed to take the first step if this was ever going to get off the ground. So that’s it first step taken !!
