Shameless Self-Promotion

Welcome to my new home!

For those looking for me at Natural Father, I hope you’ve followed me here…

I just finished transferring my posts from Natural Father to this domain, but haven’t gotten around to customizing my theme yet. I’ve been happy at Blogger until recently, when I started using the Word Press interface at some other sites I write for, and I realized that I really wanted to be able to tweak my site easily. After reading Matt Banners blog, I think Blogger is a great free blogging platform, but Word Press is just so much better. I chose the Thesis theme because of its flexibility and SEO strengths, and now I just need to learn how to drive this thing.

I’ve been fortunate in being asked to contribute elsewhere on the web, but it has taken my time away from this blog. One of my goals for 2009 is to put more energy into my own site, making it a home for more fatherhood related articles. I see a lot of mommy bloggers who have really grown their sites into great resources for mothering and parenting, and I hope to follow suit.

Where can you find me when I’m not here?

On social media:

I was interviewed at Green Talk Radio recently, so if you would like to hear the voice behind these ramblings, head over and listen to Sean Daily and I as we converse about green living, blogging, homebirth and fatherhood: Green Blogger

I’m always open to suggestions for topics and feedback on what I write, so don’t hesitate to leave a comment!

Things I dig include: simple living, natural fatherhood, attachment parenting, natural building, unassisted childbirth (homebirth), bicycles, permaculture, organic and biodynamic gardening, vegan peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips, bouldering, and the blues. Find me elsewhere at @NaturalPapa, @DerekMarkham, Google+, or RebelMouse.

One thought on “Welcome to my new home!

  • Good for you Derek. Let me know how I can help. This is a great theme, you’ll love it. I’m using it with a site I’ve bought with a friend. Hats off to you!
