It all kicked off with Oreos. Several popular vloggers were sent biscuits and, working with Oreo, challenged their viewers to an Oreo lick race. The resulting content has prompted the Advertising Standards Agency to respond. The ASA has put out a statement reiterating that online content advertising or promoting a product or service needs to […]

The one in which I discuss vlogging, via the medium of a vlog and proves that if I have the technical skills to make a video and put it on Youtube, anyone can. Starts well…. the end, not so much.
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 […]
Should you drive traffic to your YouTube channel? On the face of it, that’s seems like an easy question. Of course! Especially since video is increasingly becoming a platform and outlet that wields influence and increasingly reaches the people you want to. The long road to video We’ve been thinking about video for quite a […]
Last month I turned down probably one of the best opportunities I’ve been approached with as a blogger. My preference word to cover blogging trips/product reviews/working with brands etc is ‘opportunity’. I can’t bear it, when people suggest bloggers get things for ‘free’. Nothing is free. I am an influencer, with an engaged audience. I […]
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. […]

But what kind of prizes work the best? Should you use a functionality like Rafflecopter to run your giveaway? BritMums chatted with Di Coke from […]
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 […]
As a blogger, do you constantly feel like you are on a rollercoaster? Love it one minute, dislike it the next? Jessica Soothill, from mummy of boy girl twins wants to find out. One minute I just LOVE blogging; I feel empowered by sitting down to write words that people read and comment upon, and message […]
This blogging thing has taken me to some weird and wonderful places over the last couple of years. The most unexpected, however, would be the back of a Hackney carriage in Central Paris. This is where I spent last Tuesday, a guest of the French men’s fashion retailer Celio*. I was there for two reasons: […]
I have a confession, in August I am the worst blogger. Does anyone blog in August? Of course, they do. Don’t they? Having largely failed to visit other blogs (as a good blogger should) I’ve very little idea. Is anyone reading this? *knocks on screen*. I’m rubbish at blogging in August. It’s my ‘slow’ month, […]
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 […]
Changing your mind is often considered a bit meh. Not the done thing. I don’t understand why. Some days I’m full of the joys of spring and some days I’m knackered and grumpy and as such, cannot guarantee a consistent response. My attitudes vary, my opinions are swayed. I often change my mind, it might […]
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 […]
So by the time this post goes live BritMums will have been and all the fantastic blogging fun will be over. Plus there is the small matter of the BiB awards which, if you didn’t already know, The Adoption Social is a finalist for in the Social Media category. We are so honoured to have […]
When you first create a blog, you will be brimming over with enthusiasm, ideas and content. It’s all so new and exciting! But then reality dawns. Unless your previous life was in journalism, copywriting or something similar in which you had to write all day, the task of writing starts to get a bit wearisome. […]
The brilliant thing about the parent blogging community is its diversity, we are many things. We are diarist and chroniclers, we are opinionated and informed, we share the useful, we are funny, we are poignant. We craft, we cook, we review. How many of us started out to be the blogger we are now? Blogging […]
It’s Saturday night, there are other places I could be; a restaurant, cocktail bar, even the pub around the corner. If I had a babysitter or possibly a social life. Instead, I am fixing broken links on my blog. Apparently, Google doesn’t like broken links and for some unfathomable reason, I care too much what […]
