Hiya, I’m Jim Coulson, a radio presenter on Pulse 2 and Pulse 1, content writer and video maker who lives in West Yorkshire with my wife, kids Elsa and Seth, and dog Alfie. Thanks for visiting BewilderedDad.com, where you can find a load of stuff to do with Yorkshire, parenting, reviews and anything else that comes up.

Elsa and Seth at Castle Hill in Huddersfield

A big part of the blog is all about Elsa, Seth and me exploring the family friendly attractions in Yorkshire as part of the Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire, but there is plenty more too. We also work with brands on content marketing campaigns and review items and events that are of interest to families. However, the site started as an antidote to so-called parenting ‘experts’ who pretend to be certain in an area where there are no solid answers.

Bewildered Dad: The Beginning

The original idea for this site came from reading a whole heap of baby books when we were expecting Elsa and realising even before the birth that they were talking a proper load of old nonsense. As every adult is different with varying needs and wants, so is every baby, toddler and child. That’s obvious, right? It seemed so to me but all of these books seemed to think that you could lump all babies into a gigantic pigeon hole. A very noisy pigeon hole.

Gina Ford, the Baby Whisperer and whoever it is that wrote What to Expect When You’re Expecting and, therefore, is responsible for that horrific film, have all made vast fortunes on the flimsy premise that parenthood is easy and that there are solid answers to every issue. Not a chance…

It’s okay to be bewildered, being a parent is a world of bewilderment. Don’t trust anyone who says they have it sorted, the big secret is that no one actually knows what they’re doing so I decided to revel in that.

To be honest, I have two kids and my own freelance content writing business, so there’s not as much time to blog about that sort of stuff at the moment (I hope Seth isn’t offended when he gets older that there are barely any posts about him – Elsa has loads!). I’ll still do it when I get around to it. Promise.

Work With Bewildered Dad

Right, another thing I need to sort out is a media pack for brands to browse through. It’s in the works. However, I’m available to work with brands either through paid content or as a review of your product, event or attraction.

Previously, I’ve worked with Hotels.com, Holiday Inn, Vue Cinemas, LNER, Rydale and a host of other companies, both local to Yorkshire and national too. We’ve also had fun reviewing places like Hesketh Farm Park near Skipton and Funzy Inflatable Theme Park in Bradford.

Whether it’s a video, blog or social media campaign, get in contact today.
