This week’s for the Dads Doing It Right series I wanted to focus on some dad writers and bloggers who are sharing their fatherhood journey. You definitely want to check out their work and if you like what you are reading their parenting journey make sure you follow them on social media. If there are any other dad parenting sites that you think we should check out leave their site in the comment section below.
Chris Gaffney – Uncommon Disclosure
Chris Gaffney is a national award-winning humor columnist and public speaker. He is a stay-at-home dad with a BA in Writing from Ithaca College and a Juris Doctorate from UCONN Law School. If you are looking for a podcast, Chris reads his stories and puts them into a podcast form. How cool is that? Check out his work over at uncommondiscourse.com.
Jeremy Barnes – Thirst Dady
Jeremy is an X-Ray technologist. He is married and has two kids. If you ask Jeremy what he cares about he will tell you that he believes in America, The Boston Red Sox, dragons, and whiskey thats been aged in small batches. That alone makes you want to check out his work. And I am not just saying that because I am a Red Sox fan. He will share his thoughts on fatherhood, sports, whiskey and more. You can follow him on Twitter @thirstydaddy for kid stuff and @jermbarnes for sports and nerd stuff. Read his work over at thirstydaddy.com.
Mark Fielding – The Apocalypse Daddy
I think Mark sums up his site the best. He says, “The philosophy of The Apocalypse Daddy is this: One day it will be the end of the world, at least mine, and I want to look back as a father and say, hand on heart, I did the best I could. I want my kids, Alice and Luca to know, whatever happens, Apocalypse Mommy and Apocalypse Daddy tried their damn best.” That alone should make you want to read his work. Go to theapocalypsedaddy.com for more on Mark’s work.
