I'm Jamie DAY (hence, A DAY In The Life - see what I've done there, clever right?) I'm dad/climbing frame/ponytail fixer/train track builder to Edie and Arlo and I'm also an award winning blogger – no, really! I won Best Baby Blog at the MAD Awards 2016 (Mums and Dads Blog Awards) and in 2018 I was nominated for Parenting Influencer of the Year 2018 in the Little London Magazine Awards.
I'm also a freelance writer and have written for GQ Magazine, Vogue and the BBC amongst others, and I regularly collaborate with some fantastic independent and global brands. I've also previously worked as Editor of The FMLY Man - a brilliant blogzine for dads, brought to you by the people behind Selfish Mother.
I've also launched a successful podcast, Man Talk, which is raising awareness about men's mental health and is normalising the conversation and removing stigmas. The podcast is a top 10 iTunes show and also featured in the New & Noteworthy global listings.
I'm also a Social Media Consultant and I'm available if you require campaign strategy advice, training or management.
Originally from Essex, I moved with my two dogs to London in my twenties. It's there where I met my wife Georgia. During a whirlwind first couple of years we moved in together in North London, then moved out to the Berkshire countryside, changed careers, started a family and got married - blimey eh?!
Because of my career, I'm blessed to spend a lot of time with my children. Whether we're climbing trees, covering ourselves in paint or visiting a farm, I like to document as much of it as possible through my blog and Instagram.
I'm interested in music, fashion, football and creative writing, but above all, spending time with Georgia, our dogs and of course our children, Edie and Arlo.
My tales embody joy and the occasional woe, inspired by the cocktail of children, dogs, my wife and our lifestyle - a glimpse into a day in the life of a modern day dad.
