Story
Tagline
Blogger, Writer and Entrepreneur: Founder of The Skint Dad Blog and The Blogfather
Introduction

Blogging was something Ricky became interested in 2013 when rising childcare and travel costs forced him to leave his job and become a stay-at-home-dad while his wife became the main bread winner.

Within a month, Ricky launched the Skint Dad blog where he wrote about his family's struggles with debt and living on the breadline, and shared his tips about rectifying the situation through saving, making and managing money better. 

18 months later the site was generating a full time income and had become one of the leading money saving blogs in the United Kingdom. In this same period Ricky had landed lucrative writing contracts with the likes of Mirror Online, BT and Quidco to name a few.  

In March 2015 Ricky launched The Blogfather, a blogging tips site aimed at the beginner and intermediate blogger who wants to learn to blog like a boss.
