About Jack

Someone complained that this page doesn’t tell you what to expect to find here in this blog so I aim to rectify this with the next line.

I am a father (sometimes called dad blogger) who writes about life, parenting, business, politics and fiction. I don’t use an editorial calendar because I don’t map out what I am going to write that far in advance. The primary focus will be on topics that relate to children and parenting. But the nifty thing about that is that encompasses a wide range of things.

Sometimes I work with companies on their PR/Marketing efforts. If they provide products or services I will disclose it. Here is an incomplete list of companies that I am currently or have recently worked with: Nintendo, Philips Norelco, Subway, Frigidaire and Mattel.

Want to know more about me, keep reading.

If I wanted to provide a professional description it would look similar to this:

Jack has a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from California State University Northridge. He has been writing for print and web publications for more than twenty years, covering a wide range of topics including: business, technology, parenting, politics, education, sports and religion.

That is far too serious so I prefer to use something like:

The Jack B. is a writer and author of 39 unpublished books and three screenplays. A former athlete and would be superhero he still fights for truth, justice and the American Way. Though he may look like a grown man, don’t fool yourself he is still a boy at heart. When he is not engaged in Walter Mitty like fantasies he is a husband, father and friend and blogs at TheJackB.

This page is a work in progress which is a good description for me. I’ll probably tweak this on a regular basis so feel free to keep checking back in because you never know what might show up.

I am a prolific writer and update frequently so don’t forget to scroll down the page to see what nugget of wisdom you just might have missed.

    @TheJackB Do you wear a long mane or is your losing hair a figure of speech?@Marcus_Sheridan

    @Marcus_Sheridan Thank you sir, I appreciate your feedback. In many ways this is the one page that makes me lose my hair. It is one of the most highly trafficked so I want it to do a good job of highlighting who I am and what I am about.

    Always pleased to see you come visit.

    One of the more enjoyable ‘about’ pages I’ve read Jack. Well done sir. 🙂

    Anyone who references a James Thurber character in their “about me” section makes me sit up and take notice. I’m so glad I finally clicked over from your twitter account!
