Forty Blogging Fathers

Forty Fathers

Following my first twenty featured blogging fathers, I wrote a post thanking those fathers. As I have now written about twenty more fathers' blogs, it's time for another recap/Thank You post.

I'm still not sure what I'm doing here, but I know I enjoy it, and hopefully other people enjoy it as well. I do get positive feedback from some of you, and of course, the best feedback is reading people's comments.

After writing the first twenty posts, I've changed things here a bit by writing non-review posts as well as featuring fathers' blogs. Some of the non-review posts have been controversial, like the recent one I wrote about spanking, the one I wrote about cord-blood banking, or the one about parents who refer to their kids' ages in months after they turn two... Well, that one wasn't that controversial... And I also wrote about spending a night without my baby.

I've tried to mention some companies and organizations that still don't understand parenting is not just about mothers, like 1-800-Flowers, which honors Stay at Home Dads on Mother's Day by calling them "Mr. Mom." I wrote about the way Playtex described their sippy cups as "Designed for Mom." And I wrote about the librarians who give fathers lessons in parenting.


And I also included some short posts with videos and audio related to fathers, like Colbert's take on the danger of Stay at Home Dads, a short post about Edward's Toys, Jon Lajoie's "Stay at Home Dad" song, and Garrison Keillor's song about Stay at Home Fathers.

Thanks again, to everyone who has commented here or is still waiting for an opportunity to say Hi. IT'S NEVER TOO LATE, you know.

    Dad of Divas, funny, but when I started, I couldn't imagine there would be so many blogs to read. There are a lot of us out there.

    SciFi Dad, thank you. I'm sure you've read many of the blogs here (I often see you in the comment sections there), but I hope you've found one or two good dad blogs here.

    Marty, thank you.

  16. I find it sweet to see dads blogging about their kids and their stories. It's sure interesting to see some stories from a dad's point of view.
