Welcome to SatonmyButt
The reason that I decided to name the blog Sat on my Butt is because I am literally always Sat on my Butt, I am a 49 year old gramps and I am disabled. Chronic pain, crap knees and fatigue have at the moment beaten me. So I decided to blog about what is happening and it was extremely cathartic and then the reviews took off, so it’s a nice little hobby that helps me feel like I have some purpose.
The website went from 5,700 hits in 2015 to over 21,000 in 2016 and I have now reviewed around 200 Beard Care Products, but the website isn’t just about beard care, there are also disability related products and general products and a blog about my life and me often having a moan!
This year I am going to be building the product reviews and will also be searching for more disability related and general products. Right now I am using a laptop tray that takes the weight off of my legs and so I will be able to spend more time writing reviews and general blogs!
I have been blogging for some time, I deleted my old blog for a fresh start a couple of years ago and I started reviewing products that help me generally and also with my disability. I am a wheelchair user and I have CRPS and CFS, which basically means I am always in pain and my energy is super low and last year I only left the house for medical appointments.
After going full beard in 2015 and reviewing some beard oil, the reviews for beard care took off and took over the website, I am going to continue reviewing beard care but the categories have been placed under a Beard Care drop down menu so that the beard side is still there but it doesn’t scare off people looking for the disability side of the website.
You will see that I have awarded a Gold Cup Award to some products, I have kept this award for the very best of the best. Of course just because a product hasn’t been awarded the Gold Cup,that doesn’t mean its a bad product, there are many amazing beard care products that didn’t get the Gold Cup. A Gold Cup means that the product is at the very top of my favourites list!
I have also set up a Facebook group for Bearded guys and women who love beards, a closed group to discuss anything from beards to cars, music to politics and even if the earth is really a globe and not flat (I kid you not). It has now over 1000 members and we often get money off codes from brands and the occasional give-aways. You can request to join here Guardians of the Beard
