About Me

Thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Karl Young, a married father of two young boys (8yo & 10yo) and multi-award nominated UK dad blogger.
I started blogging about fatherhood and family life in 2013. It was on a late night-feed that i discovered the world parenting blogs and from that day on, I had chosen to share, learn and grow with other parents and UK parenting bloggers.
Highlights and accolades include:
We are a family of four, my wife and I and our two boys: one a manic two year old and a headstrong four year. We bought our second home in 2014 and continue to make improvements to the house and garden in which you will become familiar with on my blog. I work fulltime for a Multi award-winning International SEO and Digital Marketing Agency in Leeds. I was married to my partner of ten years in the summer 2017.

Like many working parents, I like to make the most out of the time I have my children. From exploring the local parks and nature trails, through to supporting and enjoying local events and attractions.

My Blog
I started my blog to share my personal experiences with like-minded people, in an attempt to help aid and reassure parents with their everyday concerns by reading about my own situation. Over time I have grown the readership of my blog, on Twitter and on my YouTube channel. In addition to this i also, when I have time, contribute to the Huffington Post and Metro Online.
I enjoy writing about my journey through fatherhood, our family days out, running product reviews, DIY, golf and any other topics that tickle my fancy. I am proud to say that I have worked on some amazing projects with some of the biggest brands:
Frankie & Benny’s: Kids in Control Competition
Yorkshire Water: Waterside Walks

Working together: SEO and PR agencies
