5 Dad blogs you should be reading

Dad blogs you should be readingOver the past six months I’ve discovered several dad blogs, each with their own unique take on fatherhood. As a source for inspiration they have been invaluable as I stumble my way through fatherhood and blogging.

Whether you are a new dad or an experienced father there is bound to be something interesting for you.

In no particular order, here are 5 dad blogs you should be reading:

  1. Almighty Dad. Since 2004, Keith has been a stay at home dad. This has given him an endless supply of topics to write about. Everything from adoption to workouts is covered with no shortage of detail.
  2. Simple Father. Don’t let the simple name fool you. This blog is full of insightful advice for fathers. Simple Father’s Scott has a refreshing writing style that is clear, and simple (duh) without losing any personality. Each post reads like it’s own little story.
  3. Calgary Daddy. Dad blogs are a relatively small niche. So I was surprised to come across a dad blogger that lives so close to me. (Only a hour away.) Calgary Daddy is one man’s journey through fatherhood. Updated frequently with experiences from his daily life this blog shows why being a dad is the greatest job in the world!
  4. A Dad Thing. Jared has been running A Dad Thing for over 3 years. His blog is stuffed full with advice, personal stories, and reviews. If it is important to dads, chances are Jared has posted about it.
  5. Dad Blogs. Started by two dads, Dad Blogs is one of the largest community for dad bloggers to connect. With a blog directory, community, and featured posts Dad Blogs is the place for any blogging father.

Do you have a blog you’d like to see on this list? Let me know.

  2. Some great reads for sure!

    Good choices my friend.

  3. Hey, man! Thanks for the mention. I guess it would be redundant to include a link to yourself as one of the best dad reads around, right 🙂

  4. Thanks for stopping by guys!

    It would be very egotistic for me to link to myself… I like to think I’m above that… well maybe.

  5. great list, I will be checking the dad’s out! I already follow Calgary Daddy, but I always love to hear a dad’s take on things!

  6. Doesn’t hurt to see things from a mans perspective 😛

    Might learn something you didn’t know… or didn’t want to know…!

  7. Hey, I just found your blog and posted a question on my mom site asking for other good dad blogs ( I found you by seeing your post on Scary Mommy’s site. Keep up the good work. You’ve come a long way in just 9 months! I launched my site earlier this year and it’s great advice that she gave … that it takes TIME. And patience.
    Looks like you’re in it (like I am) for the long haul. Good luck and I’ll be checking in on you now and again.
