I’m going to take a slightly different approach to this month’s dad blogger round up. You see BritMums Live is almost upon us and each year a tiny percentage of attendees has X Y chromosomes. I thought I’d introduce you to the dads I know will be in attendance. Firstly though, why do dads go […]

First of all, an apology from me. I’m a little late in providing this month’s dad blogger round up. I am sure many of you will relate to the reasons why; the Easter holidays. With the beginning of the new school term and the youngest back in the routine of having afternoon naps, I have […]
For all bloggers, dads and otherwise, there has been one very significant and sad development over recent weeks. This is the passing away of Oren Miller. Oren was a US-based stay at home dad and wrote Thebloggerfather. He was also the man behind the Dad Bloggers Facebook page, not only somewhere to showcase blog posts […]
It’s a new year, but I’m going to kick off this dad blogger round up with an old favourite; Frozen. I don’t know about you, but I am staggered by the runaway success of this Disney blockbuster. Even so, it is easy to understand why it has proved so popular. My kids both love it, […]
This month’s dad blog round up is not what I planned. I was going to trawl the Internet for blog posts all about Christmas. To my surprise, I struggled to find any. For whatever reason, us dad bloggers just don’t seem to be in the Christmas spirit yet! In the absence of Christmas-themed blogs, here […]
Us dad bloggers can be a reflective bunch. Over the past few weeks I’ve seen quite a few blog posts from dads pondering deeply on various things they have done or experienced. The time of year lends itself to reflection. With all the Remembrance Day commemorations I’ve spent a lot of time explaining the complexities […]
What do you get if you take a psychotherapist, two stay at home dads, one of whom likes to write about feminism and a dad that has a thing for laundry bleach? You get the dad bloggers that feature in this month’s round up, that’s what. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a real autumnal mix. […]
Go on, admit it; you loved spending time with the kids over the summer holidays. It was, nonetheless, time for them to go back to school wasn’t it? I know I’m not the only one to feel this way. I’ve seen loads of blog posts from mums and dads who are either relaxing or spring […]
Looking around at what the dad bloggers have been writing, it’s quite clear most have been enjoying the summer. There are loads of posts about holidays and days out. This one from Tim at Slouching Towards Thatcham caught my eye. It’s his top tips for visiting LegoLand Windsor and, having been last summer with my […]
Hello and welcome to my first-ever BritMums dad blogger round-up. I’ve been given the daunting task of taking over from the amazing Spencer, who has moved on to other things (I’ll come on to what Spen’s doing shortly). It’s been quite a month for us dad bloggers. Four of the better known chaps, working collectively […]
Hello there and Happy New Year to you all. It’s 2014, and I know we’re only a few days in but I hope its working out for you all. A new year. You can practically smell the cellophane it was wrapped in. A new year and with this year that is new comes renewed optimism, […]
It’s December, and that means one thing. It’s the time of year a jolly bearded man gives out gifts. And so here I am with a massive sack, full of presents for you this month. All of them gift-wrapped with a lovely little tag on them. I’ve not kept the receipts, so there shan’t be […]
“Oh the weather outside is frightful…” Forgive me. I’ve sung a song associated with that most wonderful Christmas time of the year and we’re still hanging around the entrance to November. But it is frightful, the weather that is. It’s roiking it down outside and Spencer’s like me are not built for such weather. I’d […]
So, the summer holidays have been and gone and the children are back at school. Well done, you all survived it. I hope you and yours all had a good summer, and now as September brings it’s own special brand of Septemberyness to the year, we’re back with another round-up of brilliant dad blogs. All […]
There’s nothing I love more than a summer heatwave. Thing is, I don’t like it so much in summer. Hot innit? I keep wandering around muttering something about the heat, and then simply falling over. Either because it’s too hot and I wilt or because someone has slapped me for talking about how hot it […]
Got a few little facts for you this morning surrounding collective nouns. I like magpies, funny little things they are, and so, when you see a few of them together they’re called, among other things for there are lots of collective nouns for magpies, a tittering of magpies. Good eh? You can also have a […]
Wilkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome! To the cabaret! I’m Spencer, your MC for this month’s dad’s round-up and on the bill today I’m proud to list some stars of the dad blogging world, in my eyes anyhow. Award winning. Inspiring. Funny and brilliant. These gents have it all and then some. They’re all that and a bag […]
‘Food, food, glorious food! What is there more handsome, gulped, swallowed or chewed?’ So the song asks. Stop sniggering at the back. It’s you isn’t it? It’s always you with the smutty mind. See me after class. Anyway, as I was about to say. Food eh? Lovely stuff. Food isn’t always merely something to shovel […]
