Hi! I’m Kip Hakes, I’m a 38-year-old Daddy Blogger. I’m married to Vicki – ‘Mrs H’ and I’ve got two children, George (16), and James (7) and a Cavachon puppy called Duggee. We live in the Essex countryside. I’ve blogged since 2008, and my blogging subjects include – Parenting, Technology, Reviews, Photography, Rants and Raves and more. I’m Designer of stuff by day, and a total nerd at night. I’m keen for the voice of Daddy Bloggers to be heard in the crowd of parent bloggers, there just aren’t enough Dads out there writing about how they feel to be a parent and their experiences along the way.
My blog has grown massively in popularity since I started, I’m working with more and more brands, trying to promote things that my readership will find interesting. I’ve worked with lots of brands over the years, and also was the resident ‘Dad Blogger’ at Emma’s Diary for a while too. This Blog has over 25,000 subscribers.
I’ve appeared on BBC Essex for commentary on Parenting Issues. I’ve been a columnist for The Essex Chronicle, and I’ve written for the Kiddicare Blog as a Daddy Blogger. I was on Channel 4’s The Gadget Man reviewing buggies and I was also featured in Morrisons Magazine (Jan/Feb 2014) reviewing Baby Products.
I love writing, and I’m always wanting to seek out new opportunities and meet new people through Blogging. If you want to work with me, or just fancy a chat – get in touch!
