I’m honoured to be asked to take over from Andy, the legend that is @dadcooking2nite. He previously compiled the Dad Bloggers Round Up for BritMums. I fill very big shoes and I hope to maintain the high standards and excellent recommendations that he made each month.
How to define ‘Dad bloggers’? Dads that blog but not always about being a dad? Sounds good to me. But according to The Sunday Times we’re about to become a demographic. This was in a recent edition of the Style section no less, which means we’re obviously now also stylish.
And so I’m gonna start my first dad bloggers round up by mentioning some of the blogs that I look to, and some I’ve always taken inspiration from since I started blogging over a year ago. All are inspiring in different ways, from the love that pours out of their blogs, to their intelligent debating of current issues, from their humour and cleverness down to being able to provide you with a recipe for a bang tidy meal. Thought-provoking, clever, intelligent and funny. Okay, so none of them are anything to look at and all actually scare horses. Some have been banned from zoos for bothering animals, and one has even been forbidden from entering Norway, but he assures me that was a misunderstanding as he was asked to carry those missiles for a friend.
Award winning, inspiring, bright and brilliant, and all definitely men who I would be honoured to call Dad. Here are my Super Seven.
Take a look around these blogs. Not just at the recent posts but at some of the older ones too. You’ll soon see that despite chromosomes and perceived differences, despite loo seats being left up and the Flora margarine not being returned to the fridge after use, dads are just as scared witless about this parenting mullarky as anyone.
See you next month, hopefully, if I’ve done this right, and thanks for reading.
@ADadCalledSpen – not a journalist nor a writer, just a father to two amazing children who teach me how to be a better person whenever I’m with them.
I blog, mainly to stop all the noises in my head, but also because I enjoy connecting with other people and reading their stories and their experiences. I also like cheese and my favourite colour is yellow. Read more on That Spencer Bloke blog
