Journalism is my job and I love it. But writing about being a father is my passion.
Up until now I’ve strictly used my own blog to talk about all things parenting. But in the nearly three years I’ve been doing the daddy blogger thing, I’ve also been able to meet some truly great guys who are dedicated to being the best dads possible, all while chronicling their adventures with intelligence, sarcasm, wittiness and a steely resolve. I’ve learned from them, been in awe of them and always wished there was some way I could collaborate with them.
Thanks to the Good Men Project, that is now a reality.
The good people over at GMP approached me a couple of months ago and asked if I’d be interested in rounding up some of the best dad bloggers out there who could contribute to a new website they wanted to start. They wanted to create a place where involved dads from different backgrounds could come together and start a frank discussion about all things fatherhood. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity and we launched today.
Welcome to Dads’ Good!
I really hope you guys will take the time to check us out, because I think we’ve got a really good thing going and it’s only gonna get better. In addition to myself, we’ve rounded up some truly unbelievable dads and writers who I think will take off like a rocket.
Ron Mattocks, Derek Markham, Craig Playstead, John Cave Osborne and Jason Avant are some of the best in the business. The fact that I’m mentioned with them is humbling in and of itself, but working to help spearhead the project is a great opportunity for which I’m incredibly grateful. I purposefully don’t sign on to many projects because I wait to work on something in which I really believe. This is one of them.
So please, if you have a minute, go over and check it out. And more importantly, click on the “Like” button and leave comments because we need to show the Good Men Project we can pull our own weight.
Showing the world that dads are just as involved as moms is something really important to me. And let me tell you, these guys and their writing will do just that. You will cry, you will laugh and you will shake your head at our ridiculousness. But you will be entertained and you’ll be supporting a movement to make fathers equal partners in parenting.
Thanks guys! And let me know what you think.
