I started reading blogs because I wanted to discover honesty that was often lacking elsewhere. Maybe it's the relative anonymity of blogging, or maybe it's the acts of solitary writing and--no matter how many people read your blog--solitary reading. And reading Nordquist Blog, I'm reminded of the feeling of discovering the honesty of another human being, and the instant connectedness we can allow ourselves to feel.

There are posts in Brett's blog that make readers cry. There are posts that make people laugh. There are many posts that will make you realize you have a lot in common. I have read many posts today, and each post has moved me, which is the reason I started reading and writing in the first place. I mean, what's the point of writing if you can't move people?

Some of the blogs I had written about before are already known to many other bloggers, especially those who write about their experiences of fatherhood. I'm always glad to find a blog that not that many people know, and I hope I have done it justice here.

And I hope you give it a try.

  1. Thank you for including my blog in your review of great dad blogs. Much appreciated! I've enjoyed going through your list of blogs and have found a number I'm now following.

  2. That's great. Glad you liked it.

  3. Very nice and informative blog you have here. Good work! And I followed you to keep up with your post.

    ps. You are doing a great job as a father!

  4. After this glowing review, I have to go check it out...

  5. Have I mentioned how great is this idea, OM? I will definitely go through the whole list, and even promote it on my own blog (see, I have a flair for blatantly 'stealing' posts)... :-)

    Congratulations again, and -of course- one can only hope to be featured here some day...

  6. It's nice to come across Dad Blogs or Daddy Blogs as there are so many mommy blogs. I love to always come across new ones. I am glad that you shared it with all of us. Have a great night.

  7. Steinar, thanks, and thanks. The guy is already more functional than his father, so I must be doing something right.

    Mom, cool. I think starting this blog has made me find the commonalities between people rather than my usual, negative way of looking at people. I think the old me would have been looking at any blogger who mentions God as a person who has nothing in common with an Atheist like me, but instead I look at this blog and find how much we're all alike.

    Gabriel, thank you. I do appreciate it. And look, I added you to the blogroll even before you left this comment.

    Stacie, thank you. And welcome. Hope you visit again.
