Getting Back To Writing
Ever since I stopped posting under the Fatherologist moniker, The Mrs. has been asking me to rethink it. I wanted to focus more on my projects and I was having a rough couple of months with the new baby, but that’s a story for another day. I love to tell stories and take photos but doing that with only my children as a subject was starting to feel limiting. There were so many other things going on that I wanted to share and write about but because it wasn’t specifically about parenthood I felt like this wasn’t the platform for it but as one smart lady told me, the platform is whatever I want it to be because I am the platform and regardless of what I do in life, fatherhood will play a part in that, which is true.
This woman of mine has always been my biggest fan and she loves to read what I write because she simply likes the way I express myself. She insists that’s also why people follow my content, that it’s not necessarily for the cute photos, but because it’s about the anecdotes and the people behind them. I don’t know if that’s true, but if it is, I have been limiting myself unnecessarily. So I thought I would try this, just write, shoot and post because I love doing it and not think so much about what category it necessarily falls under because ultimately I am a father doing whatever it is that I do and if you like to be a part of whatever this is, then I would be delighted.
I would love to hear your opinion though, what brought you to my feed, what content compels you the most. If it’s the photos, the anecdotes, the advice or maybe a combination of all of it and the rhetoric with which I deliver it.
Personally I think Ana has a hidden agenda with her encouragement to get back to posting. When she was working and I was alone with Ean I know how much she loved the daily posts, I think it made it easier for her to have a glimpse into my daily life with our child. Now that she’s getting closer to start working again I know she’s going to miss them and she’s going to worry about how I’m going to deal with my constant projects all while caring for two kids. Let’s find out together, shall we?
