[Welcome to the Skinny Jean Gardener Blog. I don’t usually blog and for very good reason. But if you would like a blogger that misspells, doesn’t use punuation and writes in quite a strong Essex accent then I am you man. That is a rather niche blogging style! And heres the only place you’ll find it! Enjoy!..]


So im boshing out some blogs on here recently hey! And theres more to come blog fans… I can here the cheers now. Anyway if you want to blame anyone for it, blame Bake with Jack as ive just come away from meeting him re energised to get more awesome/ moderately entertains content out into the world of social thingy.. whatever we call it. But back to Jack. 


Maybe a year or so ago now… maybe longer I can’t remember, some how I came across Bake with Jack… not really the most detailed description of how I found him, but there you go.. welcome to the SJG blog. 


Anyway I thought he was great, don’t get me wrong ive not made a loaf of bread yet, but I love his content and its so interesting to watch someone else in a different industry doing his thing and absolutely smashing it! Ive watched his youtube channel grow from 300 to 5000 subs, kept unto date with his daily battles with his PC and the adventures of the Bake with Jack mobil and watched him create and awesome followership of bakers.. and in my case and im sure many others, non bakers. 


And then last week I headed to Tilgate for the Eat Food Fest where we were both performing and I walked round the corner and there he was. That geez from the insta, from those weekly youtube vids.. right there.. it was well weird, in a great way. I mean what a great guy! So positive and such a laugh. Its weird init because your never sure what people will be like in real life.. I mean let me be honest with ya.. in real life I don’t go jumping around in a gold jacket, infact im proper grumpy.. well ok maybe not grumpy but y’know :)


Jack was exactly how he is on screen, proper happy, full of life and full of jokes. He even had a mini fan club that had come to the festival to watch his demo who he had been at their house the night before doing a workshop! And it after this lil meet up that its re energised me in hopefully producing some great stuff in the future, its meeting great people like Jack that really makes this job worth it.. 


And before I start getting all teary on the keyboards if you breads your thing or even if it aint check out Bake with Jack now, because ive got a feeling we’re going to be seeing alot more of him in the future! 


Also top tip be careful if you meet your social media heros in real life, its proper weird!
