Whether you'd like to call them "Dad Bloggers," "Daddy Bloggers," or just "Bloggers that happen to be Dads," there's a lot more men jumping into the "parenting" realm of the blogging world on a regular basis. While the mainstream media loves to toss headlines like "Year of the Dad Blogger!" (which I'm fairly sure has been used for the past three years, not counting the just-started 2013), there's a lot of interesting voices out there that are all working on building audiences for their unique and very personal writings. Last month, Oren Miller of A Blogger and a Father created a private Facebook Group to unite Dad Bloggers in one place to meet, mingle, swap stories, and cross-promote. This past week, The Rock Father joined the growing group.
When I became a Father for the first time nearly two years ago, I had no idea that my adventures in parenting would somehow crossover into my online writing. After finding myself a new addition to the growing number of Work-at-Home Dads, I found that while 'Daddy Blogs' exist online, they're far fewer in number than the parenting blogs geared toward women, and that few appealed to my own interests.
