Thanks to New York Family Magazine for including Lance and I in their article, Dads the Word: A Few of our Favorite NYC Father Writers. First, it’s an honor to be included among amazing writers such as Skip Card of Inside Schools, Jay Bushara of Onepotato.net, and Bruce Feiler, the inspirational man and author of Council of Dads.
Second, it feels great to be called a writer! I’ve been an associate, a manager, a teacher, and I’ve worn the label “Stay-At-Home-Dad” for nearly six years. “Writer” is not something I’ve thought about, so thanks to New York Family Magazine for the new label.
All that being said, there are some real writers, authors and journalists out there that continue to inspire me everyday, so please allow me to share of few of my favorite father writers.
1. The writing team at Daddy Dialectic: this is the grandfather of Dad blogs, and continues to be one of the most intelligent, insightful, and enlightened sites on the web. Here are some of my favorite recent posts:
Parenting While Male, by Jeremy Adam Smith
Failing to Access My Inner Tiger Mother, by Beta Dad
Counting Dads at Preschool Potluck, by chicagopop
2. Tom Matlack, founder of The Good Men Project: This companion magazine to the book and documentary by the same name covers everything from men’s rights to porn addiction. Tom Matlack is leading the way in proving to the world that men are reinventing themselves and that it’s time for the media to catch up. Here are some of Tom’s recent posts:
3. Ron Mattocks of Clark Kent’s Lunchbox: I’ve just recently started reading this site, and I’m blown away by Ron’s ability to vividly share the personal details of his life in a way that connects him to his readers. Anybody looking for a good man, and a good father, look no further. Here are some recent posts:
