I’ve recently been doing some work on ActiveDad, a new blog by Republic Publishing. It’s a parenting blog, but not in the traditional sense. So you won’t find any advice about potty training, pregnancy or how to deal with temper tantrums from a two year-old.

Instead, it’s about ways that dads can give their kids an exciting childhood. Ideas for great days out with your kids, science experiments, toys, games, adventures, hobbies and advice. It’s about tree houses and go-karts; balloon rockets and scalextric. Here are just some of the articles that I’ve written for the site so far:
