There are so many awesome parenting blogs out there, who has time to read them all. This is especially true when you are supposed to be watching the kids (right?). Well to help you out and share the love of the parent community, I want to share some links that I really enjoyed. I won’t promise daily, but when I do post, I will feature at least 10 articles worth a read.
The PL stands for Parental Leave, which I am currently doing for six months.
Don’t worry family and friends who look forward to the PL Daily, I am trying my best here. It is just hard to get motivated to write every day. A lot has been happening this week, so if this turns into a week wrap up, don’t get all technical on me. Charlie is growing up faster than this blog can go. Every day he is adding something new and I am taking the time to just enjoy it rather than sharing it with you. What has he been doing that is so great? Well I will get to that later. The title of this post should give away two items that involves Charlie. With August hitting, it means I have two months left on my parental leave. Where did the time go? I mean, two months is still a long time, but it already feels like it is going to end in days. Better enjoy it while I can.
Day 85 was also Coolio’s 50th birthday and I would have to say my time with Charlie to date has been a fantastic voyage to say the least.
There are so many dad-i-cated bloggers out there, it is hard to read everything they post. But every now and then, we try to share some of what they have to say. The dad blogging community is growing rapidly and we hope you can take some time to sample some of their talents. Want your link added? Just use the contact link at the bottom.
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.
