Moms! Wives! Do you ever wonder what your husband or significant other is going through with their parenting scenarios? What goes on in their heads? Husbands have a tendency to keep their mouths shut, because they just don’t want to start an argument or any sort of household wars.

We read a lot of blogs written by moms. If you’re a mom, you could easily relate, but what about the dads? Here are 10 amazing dad blogs with their own characteristics and different personalities. We have dads who aren’t afraid to express their soft side, there are funny dads, adventurous dads, articulate dads, and dads who just want us to know their side of life!


#1

WritingPadDadProfileOur #1 dad blog for 2013 is written by Justin Knight, a onesie dad from Southern California. His blog, called Writing Pad Dad, is thought provoking and often times quite funny. You will get absolutely stuck reading blog post after blog post at Writing Pad Dad. Justin LOVES his family, is proud to be married to his lovely wife, and just the all around, helpful, super dad!

Justin has had a lot of experience with small children. He’s been a school teacher for over 15 years and have taught kids from grades 3 to 6. So if you need a man’s point of view about kids, he’s definitely one to ask!

It was Kenny Bodanis who convinced voiceBoks to expand its interests into the community of parents. Having once been just a network of moms, he opened our minds and our hearts to the lovely stories and memories dads have with their children.

Kenny is a weekly radio columnist on the Ric & Suzanne show in Canada. He is slowly, but surely making his mark as the articulate, funny, and well-rounded dad blogger in Montreal and around the blogosphere. Being voted #2 around the world confirms that his blog is definitely one to follow in 2013!

stephenlitelprofileStephen is the ultimate dad. He is a divorced, retired sports writer who makes every moment with his children worthwhile. He is a loving dad of a little boy who was diagnosed with autism and a precious little girl who would rather be helpful than be just a “little girl.”

Stephen is a “thinker” and hasn’t been much of a “do-er.” He’s making efforts to start new adventures and pushing himself to do things he’s never done before. His blog will inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and explore possibilities you never have before.

AskaGreatDadProfileA characteristic that many good blogs have is its originality.  Many parent bloggers can be a bit cautious about the things they say or write about on their blogs. Robert wants people to get a glimpse of parenting without all the editing that goes behind it.

At Ask a Great Dad, What You See Is What You Get, but you also get a lot of harsh reality stories. Don’t shake your head because this dad says the things we might be thinking but couldn’t get ourselves to write about.

Our 3 Favorite Posts from Ask a Great Dad Are:

How Much Do You Influence Your Child’s Interest in Sports?

How Does Your Child Love, Sleep, & Play?

Are Your Children Afraid of The Dentist?
