Festival Of The Fathers- A Blog Experience


Welcome to the first edition of The Festival of Fathers- A Blog Experience. It is a collection of posts about parenting but written from a father's perspective. Consider this the unofficial first edition in what will eventually become something bigger and better than it is now, kind of like our children.

There is no rhyme or reason to the order, they appear in random fashion, kind of like our kids do. One moment it is silent and the next it sounds like all hell has broken loose and then it is silent again. That is the way of children. If you like what you read leave a comment here and of course let the dads know on their own blogs.

And if you don't agree with how we do it, remember, we're men and we don't ask for permission or directions because life is a lot more fun when you just live it. ;)

Jack - this is an awesome idea. And loops me in on some dads bloggers that I don't read.

Hi John,

Thanks. I am happy to have so many fine fathers to include.

NY Dad,

We'll definitely keep this up. Got to do what we can to help each other out.

You are a father and you write. That is enough for me.

Hi Sean,

We're glad to have you aboard.

Hi Ben,

I'll see what I can do.

Wow. Very cool idea. Thanks for including me in such a great group of dads.

Jack said...

Hi Kevin,

I'll keep those in mind.

Hi James,

I am the admin for a blog carnival that we do in the Jblogosphere. It works well there so I figured I'd give it a shot here.

Hi PJ,

My pleasure. I figure that it is long past time for the fathers to work together. This is just one little piece of the puzzle.

Tessasdad said...

Great stuff here. Thanks again. Awesome to see all of us working together to promote each other as well.

Viva la revolucion!

Jack said...

Viva la revolucion!

Amen!

Great list of some great writing. Thanks for sharing

Great job. Trying to connect with lots of other dads, seems like a full-time job. I like all the ones you listed and looking for others to connect with.
Still trying to figure it out and find a niche, but you've listed a wide perspective, which is fantastic.
Were all men, were all dads and we all have a point of view that matters. I enjoy reading and seeing life through other dads lenses.
Thanks for you efforts and work you put into this.

It takes a bit of time, but it is worth it. Really good guys here.

This is a great list of Dads. I am proud to say that I already know most of them. It's nice to share the love.

Jack,

I'm coming to this late, but I'm glad I found it. I've started writing about fatherhood at http://familybed45.blogspot.com/, and I'm glad to see such a large community.

Thanks for this bringing this together.
