This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right Series I am putting the spotlight on a few dads that you need to follow on social media. From bringing the laughs to keeping you in the know with the latest tech these dads will brighten up your social media feed. Some of these dads I have met in person or have interviewed on my podcast series. Others I have met through their social media handles. Make sure you get social with these guys and follow them on their platforms!
Mitch Chaitin – One Of The OG’s In Fatherhood
One of the original dad bloggers, Mitch is a fantastic follow. When I was living in New Jersey I would run into him as different events in New York City. Mitch wants to make sure everyone is having a great time. I really enjoy hanging out with him. Now that I am moved to NC, I don’t get to see him as much. Thankfully with social media I still get to virtually hang out with him. He has dad jokes galore and shares a bunch of fantastic memes. You might even win a cool prize from him since he has a ton a great promotions on his site. Follow Mitch on Instagram at @gaynycdad.
James Breakwell – The Internet’s Unicorn
I had the chance to interview James a few times. Whether it was for a podcast or a Facebook Live show, James would share some fantastic stories on parenting. A few years back James was named 2016 Blogger Dad of the Year. In 2017, he was a finalist for a Shorty Award in the parenting category. He has also written a few books on fatherhood. So if you like his comedic style on social media I am guessing you will enjoy his books. Follow him on Twitter at @XplodingUnicorn.
Tshaka Armstrong – Tshaka Explains It All
Tshaka Armstrong is a Renaissance man! From teaching you about the latest tech to sharing his thoughts on fatherhood, Tshaka does it all. I have met him a few years back when he was kind enough to be a guest on my podcast. Since I started following him I am up to date on all the latest gadgets and tech. I love seeing him and his sons on a livestream playing video games together. He and I share a love for all things geek and sneakers. You will appreciate his works of wisdom he shares on social media. Plus he can motivate you to work out as well with his lifting videos. Like I said he is a Renaissance man. Follow him at @tshakaarmstrong.
Simon Holland – Rival Dads Beware
Simon Holland is a great follow unless you are one of the rival dads he picks on each day. In all seriousness he makes a lot of people laugh with his quick wit. If he was part of a dad Avengers team, he would be Tony Stark. He wants to make sure he has the first and last laugh. In the world filled with dad jokes his reign supreme. You can’t go from with lines like, “All parents want is for our kids to go to bed so we can watch a show with bad words in it and eat the hidden snacks.” Follow him on Twitter at @simoncholland.
Glen Henry – Beleaf In Fatherhood
Glen has a passion for fatherhood. You can see it in his videos. He was even part of the Dads documentary that came out early this year. For Glen, his mission is to equip fathers, give hope to mothers, and inspire children. That is one powerful mission. He walks the walk as he shares his fatherhood journey. I can relate to his videos as a dad. You can catch his videos on YouTube as well as his Instagram account. Follow him on Instagram at @beleafmel.
Brian Gordon – The Foul Language Of Fatherhood
Brian Gordon sums up fatherhood through his artwork. He has a hilarious comic series called Fowl Language. What can you find in his series? Gordon says, “My comics are largely inspired by my struggles as a parent, my fascination with technology, science and all things geeky. Oh, and a constant, crushing wave of self-doubt and anxiety. That’s a big source of inspiration, too.” Follow him on Instagram at @fowllanguagecomics.
