Dads Round-up: The rise of the stay-at-home dad

Their number is small but growing. Dads who eschew the traditional role of bread-winner in favour of staying at home are on the rise. It’s a choice more dads are taking up on either a permanent or a temporary basis. Even more are adopting flexible working practices so they can be involved in drop-offs and pick-ups, attend […]

Dad Blogger Round-up: Festive hangover edition

A lot of us will be glad to see the back of 2016, and losing George Michael was the icing on the cake. So many bad things happened that I’ve lost track. But luckily there were some great blogs from the dads out there to finish off the year and start off 2017 on an […]

Dad Blogger Round-up: How did I get here?

The quick answer to the title question is, no idea!  January 2016 I had no idea what a blog was, February 2016 I found out and started one, August 2016 I landed this gig, December 2016 I’m still laughing inside that people actually read the stuff I transfer from head to screen. It’s been a […]

Dads Round-up: The other side of the parenting fence

Fathers remain a rare commodity in the parent blogging world. Only 7% of Tots100’s members – and just three of the current top 100 – are dads. Which is a shame, because not only are there some terrific dad bloggers out there but as a group we offer an alternative view from the other side of […]

Dad Blogger Round-up: What I’ve been reading

Welcome back to the latest Dad Blogger Round-up – the only place to get your monthly dose of all things dad. I usually try to apply some kind of ‘theme’ to my round-ups, but I’m happy to admit that I’ve failed miserably this month. Instead, I’m going to wing it slightly with the random theme of ‘posts […]

Dads Round-up: The male perspective on #BML16

A couple of weeks have passed since #BML16. It’s the biggest parent blogging event on the calendar, this year celebrating its fifth birthday with a streamlined one-day agenda and an informal ‘fringe party’ tagged on the previous evening. But with men once again very much in the minority despite the name change away from ‘BritMums […]

Dad Blogger Round-up: Being a modern dad

Welcome back to the dad blogger round-up for May. As the name cleverly suggests, this is a round-up of the latest dad blogger posts which have caught my attention over the last month. Rather than do some kind of ‘theme’, I’ve instead decided to focus on a few of the newbie dad blogs who have cropped up […]

Dads Round-up: Giving dads a voice

In February’s dads’ round-up, Dave put the spotlight on the growing army of dad vloggers. But did you know that the last year or so has also seen an increase in the band of brothers who have picked up a microphone and started sharing their thoughts on fatherhood via the audio medium of podcasts? No? […]

Dad Blogger Round-up: #IWD2016 and beyond…

Let’s kick off this dad blogger round up with a belated look at International Women’s Day. Why so? You may be asking. Well, because a couple of very heart-felt blog posts written by guys acknowledging the day caught my eye. Eddie, who writes the AKA Daddy blog, wrote this wonderful tribute to all the mothers […]

Dad Blogger Round-Up: Blogging to vlogging

It’s that time of the month again. No, not *that* one. I, of course, mean the BritMums Dad Blogger round-up. In an unprecedented move though, I’m going to mix things up big time for February. This may be called the Dad Blogger round-up, but for this month, I’m swapping that “B” for a “V” as […]

Dads Round-up: The many facets of fatherhood

Who are we as dad bloggers? We are fathers and husbands, yes, but we are many things besides. Wide-eyed and enthusiastic or bleary-eyed and jaded, we are fathers of babies, toddlers, pre-teens and teens, working dads and stay-at-home dads. And though our number as bloggers is small (but growing), we cover the full spectrum of […]

Dad Blogger Round-up: All change & newbies

I know what you’re thinking. Yes, I’m not John from Dadbloguk and yes, I know that is a huge disappointment. But, before you hang me out to dry and demand your usual daddy blogger back, all I ask is for a few minutes… You see, there are going to be a few little changes around […]

Dad’s Round-up: Back after a break

It’s been a little while since I’ve written a dad blogger round up. Please accept my apologies, I fear the summer holidays intervened, as did a couple of personal matters. That said, I’m going to leap in with one of those campaigns that shows just how powerful bloggers can be in demonstrating public opinion; the […]
