What is Project D.A.D.?

I'd ask for you to answer by a show of hands, but I wouldn't be able to see any of  you. I'll ask anyway...

Any dads out there feel that "parenting" magazines are geared mainly for the moms? Any dads out there really dislike the term Mr. Mom? Who thinks dads are portrayed as inept on television and in advertising? If you answered yes to any of those, you're in the right place! I agree and frankly, it's annoying.

And that's where the idea for Project D.A.D.- Division of Awesome Dads- came from. This will be a blog for dads, written by dads about all things dad related. From parenting, sports and exercise (yes, including running) to house work, work-family balance and funny kid stories...you name it, we'll cover it.

Now do we do everything right? Nope. Do any of on my fellow Project D.A.D.s? Hell no! But neither do moms. We don't think we're alone; dads need to stick together and take a stand.

We know some dads work, some stay at home, some live with their kids and some dads don't. All dads are welcome. If you'd like to contribute, drop us a comment.

OK, I admit, it's more of a rough draft or an outline of an idea. Just go with it and come along for the ride! We'll be getting things up and going here, including a facebook page, twitter info, bios, cool links...so hang tight and let us know what you'd like to talk about!

For now, D.A.D.s out!

  • Welcome. Always good to have another dad voice online. I'm also starting a Chicago dad blog too: chicagodads.wordpress.com Not much there to see right now. Maybe we can riff off each other.

    Awesome! Would love to! You're welcome to blog here too, if you'd like!

  • Good for you! Dads need encouragement and recognition too.
