While things have been a little quiet on the blog of late [coughs and looks at the floor in embarrassment], they've been bloomin' crazy on the award nominations front. Not only has the Daddy Diaries Blog been long listed in 'Dad' category in the Britmums BiB (Brilliance in Blogging) Awards, it's also been nominated in the MAD Blog Awards. Whoop.
First up then, the BiBs: if you've arrived at the Daddy Diaries Blog wondering whether you should vote for us, I thought you'd appreciate a handy link or five to the type of stuff we (and by 'we' I mean 'I') blog about.
I champion amazing dads in a bit to combat the lazy, oafish, incompetent dads portrayed in the papers and on TV. Over Christmas I did this in a series called The 12 Dads of Christmas.
I try to create engaging, original and at times exclusive content, like this interview with Julia Donaldson.
I link to good stuff that I like or stuff that I've found useful with my sons Alex, three, and Elliot, one.
I wrote about my boys' development so they have something to look at when they're older.
I comment on parenting issues or things that have generally irritated me online or in the press.
