Parenting Blogs: The Daddy Bloggers
This week my focus is on daddy bloggers. A lot of people know mommy bloggers. And we’ll get to them next week. But for now, I want to discuss this growing pack of publishing paterfamiliases. Sure they’re slightly less involved in the whole childbirth process. But they’ve still got a role to play. Dads can cook. Dads can stay at home to raise the kids. Sometimes, they can even have sole custody. And when it comes to these five bloggers, they’ve got a lot of wisdom and experiences to share. So with that in mind, let’s promise to buckle our seat belts, not forget to call when we get home and enjoy this brief tour of some of the best daddy blogs I’ve seen lately.
Make Me Wanna Holler is not just a line from one of my favorite Marvin Gaye songs. It’s also a great blog about parenting. Actually, it’s also about cooking and history and current events and relationships. Turns out being a dad covers a lot of bases. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with parenting. Stories that touch on cooking or music might also work. Check out the full review here.
Stay At Stove Dad is the story of a working dad who aims to put food on his family’s table. And I mean that literally. He gets home from work and then cooks for his family. Oh, and he blogs about it, too. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories on parenting and cooking. Stories with recipes that are short on time, but not nutrition might also work. Check out the full review here.
Single Dad House is the story of a single father coming off not one, but two divorces. He has one adult daughter and one young son of whom he retains primary custody. Oh, and he’s also got a pretty great blog about everything that comes with moving on. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories on single parenting, relationships and even divorce. Check out the full review here.
I wouldn’t call The Busy Dad Blog the voice of a reluctant father. I would say that having kids has changed so much about this man’s life. I would say that fatherhood has blown his mind. But in a great way. This is the story of a man who falls back in love with his children every day. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories on parenting. Things to do with martial arts and Star Wars might also work. Check out the full review here.
HighTechDad is a blog dedicated to finding the best technology for the family. Whether it’s a new gadget or a review of a car, you can expect to read this dad’s opinion on the matter. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories dealing with parenting and technology. Things having to do with cars might also work. Check out the full review here.
That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…
