Family is not an important thing. It’s everything. Michael J. Fox

Amber wants this to be a family blog, not just another mom blog.  So this is my first Dad Blog contribution.   I guess it should be more of a dad blogger introduction post.  

Random Facts about me, the new dad blogger 

  • Father to 3 amazing kids.
  • I met the love of my life by offering her a slice of pizza in the Caribbean.
  • Certified Scuba Diver
  • Classically trained cartographer but I also love Satellites and GIS work.
  • I mapped a cave for the Sheik of Dubai.
  • Favorite Movie is Wyatt Earp.
  • Amber made me take a salsa dance class with her, and I caught Mono from the instructor.  She doesn’t ask for dance classes anymore.

  • After I finish writing this, can I add Dad Blogger to my list of randoms?  

My goal dad blogging topics are 

  • Sports
  • Politics – International Relations was my Minor in college.  
  • Environmental Issues
  • Video Games
  • DIY Projects, I can fix anything.   
  • Raising Future Major League Baseball Stars.
  • Music and Jazz Hands.
  • Frugal tips maybe?  Tip number 1, take away Amber’s credit cards.  (not really, she makes her own money)
  • Friends, making adult friends is a complicated issue.
  • I’m considering podcasting / vlogging.  


My parenting goals 

  • Raising good people.
  • Getting the boys to poop in the toilet.
  • We are really winging the rest of it.


Amber likes to travel, I just carry the bags and hold on for the ride.    I took off Wednesday to go with her to get the boy’s passports done so that stops holding us back.   I should go buy her flowers now because she’s a grump today.  


Now I have a favor from you?  Who are your favorite dad bloggers?  Is there a dad blog handbook?  Dad Blogging Etiquette?  Where do I find the best dad bloggers?
