Blogging Like A Dad – Top 50 Dad Blogs of 2012

As an experienced and somewhat successful blogger, taking on the daddy genre was  next on the list of challenges. I have figured out what it takes to grow and explode a blog and in the last three years, I had gotten dad experience first hand with my two boys. So it only seemed natural to mix the two.

Time was the challenge. I was always saying, when I have time, when things slow down etc. But as any working parent knows, things NEVER slow down.

So I just did it. Started up the new blog from scratch and have been adding content for a month.

Recently Babble.com put out their annual list of Top 50 Dad Blogs of 2012 and I was very excited to go through each and every one to first, read about other great dads and their thoughts and secondly, size up the competition.

I have to say, way more impressive than I first thought. I knew the Mom blog world was full and just assumed dads would be too busy to blog. Silly me. The list only touches on 50 and I can think of several not even on there that I read almost daily.

I salute all the dad bloggers on this list and all the ones so close. What does this list do for me personally? Well it gives me motivation to work hard, pour my dad thoughts out and entertain all of you. Then maybe I will join the ranks of these dad blogs.
