Dadomatic – BlogHim?

After seeing a series of tweets from a broad range of cool men, I stumbled upon Chris Brogan‘s newest site, Dadomatic. The site is a range of posts from men who are taking fatherhood seriously.

From Eric Peterson:

Children can be so inspirational. It’s neat to see how they grow and develop, and even teach adults important lessons. So, that was my toddler taught adversity lesson. Or maybe it was actually a lesson on “independence” or “perseverance” or “toughness.” At any rate, it’s another valuable lesson from a special child!

From Scott Wilder:

In the pursuit of evaluating my stewardship of time; I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve allowed deadly toxins to invade my schedule. Toxins in the form of people and activities that impare my ability to lavish love and attention on my bride and forthcoming child.

From Joe Hage (on a subject we’re also dealing with at home):

Four-year-old Lukey got in trouble today.

Hitting at school. This after yesterday’s “pushing game” at school and the day before’s “spitting at school.”

This site gives a voice to a segment of people who rarely get to really talk about parenting. We applaud women as mothers, single mothers, females in general who blog, but when do we pat men on the back for the roles they play in our children’s lives? My husband is an amazing father, and I’m so glad to be able to show him this site and give him a way to speak out on the amazing things he does with our kids.

My only suggestion is to have the author’s names link to their home blog so when people (like me) quote this blog, we can link back to them correctly.

Thanks Chris, for giving men a community like Categoriesblogging, community, personal, web 2.0

  1. Robyn,
    Thank you for spreading the word about Dad-O-Matic. I only happened upon the site a week or so ago, and I immediately knew I needed to be a part of it’s community of writers. It’s inspirational and a great site for all parents.

    As a father to a 3-1/2 year old and a 1 year old, I have learned many life lessons from my children. I love viewing our children as professors. Not only can they learn form us, but we can learn from them as well.

    Thank you again for spreading the word.

    PS-I look forward to reading your husband’s blog as well. I haven’t come across many blogs focused on “the Word”.
