This is a blog with a purpose, and that purpose is to tell the story of my foray into parenting and hopefully, to build up some support and donations on our crowdfunding page (see the handy green button to the right). So you probably need a few key pieces of information, and here they are:
- Who are we?
Well simply put we are a new, small family. Myself "Pappa Carr", My partner in sin "The Fergotron" and of course the star of the show "Lizzy The Face" our amazing and entertaining daughter.
- Why the blog?
I want to make some money, to take a break from work and to retrain in web design. I've taught myself html coding, I'm learning Java script, I'm pretty good but I need some full training and time to do this. Unfortunately as a reasonably responsible man I am holding down a job to pay for those pesky things like the mortgage and occasionally food and thus I can't afford to take a break to change my career. I hope that this blog will inspire people to help me raise my goal and the updates will act as some kind of reward, and maybe a little support for other new dads trying to get to grip with being a father in 2015 - I know you're out there!
- Why The Career Change
Well really I am a heady mix of creative genius and super-geek! (haha) and although I love my job - I work in Food and Beverage - and I'm in management so reasonably successful after a fashion it doesn't allow for a good work/life balance and there is no chance of a telecommute!
So that is enough to be getting on with, we will delve into these things as the blog progresses I'm sure and of course, we will here more about the adventures of Lizzy the Face, The Fergotron and Pappa Carr!
