So, as most of you know, I spent the better part of the last month shilling for votes, nay, BEGGING for votes.
AND THEY TOTALLY PAID OFF!
I just got word that I won the About.com Reader’s Choice Award for Fatherhood Blog of 2012! Sure, it’s a small niche, but I don’t care because it’s my niche. Now, I could go on and on about how awesome I am and how much I deserve this award…but that’s not me. No, I want to showcase the people I was up against.
They are all good blogs and deserve a little link love of their own. So, without further ado, here they are in no particular order.
They are the official blog of The National Fatherhood Initiative. You can also visit their facebook page as well!
National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI), founded in 1994, works in every sector and at every level of society to engage fathers in the lives of their children. NFI’s national public service advertising campaign promoting father involvement has generated television, radio, print, Internet, and outdoor advertising valued at over $500 million. Through its resource center, FatherSOURCE™, NFI offers a wide range of innovative resources to assist fathers and organizations interested in reaching and supporting fathers. Check out www.fatherhood.org for more information!
Jeff is one committed daddy. He’s a cycle-breaker. And he can describe himself better than I can. If you’re interested in involved and caring dads who talk about it, you need to check him out. Here’s his about page to give you some more insight into this committed and caring pop.
He’s also on facebook. So drop on by and give him a “Like”.
This dad’s blog was started with one question: “How can corporate parents be more engaged at home when they travel for business?” This is a VERY poignant question for a lot of people. When my wife’s company was shifting software packages for their inventory tracking and shipping, she was gone for weeks at a time. The saving grace, we didn’t have kids yet. But now we have two boys and there is a looming thought that the travel might come back at any point in time. This is an invaluable resource for parents on the go to become ENGAGED parents on the go.
So, now the contest is over and my competitive side has been put away, I look forward to bringing these guys into my circle and helping spread the word about them.
Thank you, again, to everyone who voted. It was nerve-wracking at times, but it was a wild ride for sure.
