First up, Nigel Higgins – DIY Daddy Blog rocking the boat with a bit of a controversial one. How Important, Or Possible Is It For Dad Bloggers To Win An Award. Nigel talks about feeling like a ‘token dad’ when making a shortlist earlier this year rather than an actual contender. Nigel also dishes out the figures that saw only 2 dads from 60 nominees.
Its an interesting one, is there possibly a better way to organise blogger awards to make it more of a fair playing field, or are there simply that many mums that are just so much better than the dad bloggers?
Next up, Benny aka Daddy Poppins with his post The Big Bad World Versus My Own Little World. Benny is known for his dad jokes and general humour, but he’s got a serious question to ask us all and it involves changing the world. Now we know there’s multiple life shattering events DAILY around the world. Events that question our views on humanity. Is it OK to sit back and ignore it all?
Stuart from Father-Hood.co.uk is next with his post Social media parenting: a picture paints 1,000 words, but not all of them are truthful I’m really interested by this topic and have written something similar myself about my teenage daughters. Stuart shares a photo deemed worthy to keep intact his social media image, followed by a more truthful representation of everyday parent life. Stuart’s post has me asking the question, should more people share unfiltered photo’s on social media, or can we all agree not to be fooled into thinking everyone else has their life together and simply enjoy the more positive images online?
Here’s one from Leigh – Dad Geek that I found amusing, especially as his world and mine are very different but I did find a few similarities. We home educate but also have 2 in school so half of Leigh’s points were relevant to me but I’m sure will relate to a lot of you hugely! 5 Ways You Can Tell Your Kids Are Back At School.
I’d love to hear how many from 5 relate to you down in the comments…
AND to finish off I’m keeping it in the BritMums family with Tim – Slouching Towards Thatcham and his post We can’t all be the Taylor Swift of the blogging world. A very good insight into the world of blogging, gauging success and which formula to use. There really is only one way in my opinion you can go into blogging, full force and being yourself.
There you go, that’ll keep you all quiet for an hour. It would be great if you could let me know what you think to this selection of quality dad blogs in the comments and also go read and leave a comment on each of these posts above.
See you next time 🙂
