A while ago we outlined 20 mom lifestyle blogs you should become familiar with. Well, with Father’s Day quickly approaching, we’ve compiled a list of six dad blogs that offer insights on fatherhood to encourage equality and to help you prepare for Father’s Day.
These fathers discuss everything from superheroes to writing to photography to design, all while providing unique parenting perspectives.
While you’re here, did you know that MyPostcard offers the ability to capture father and child moments on a postcard or photo print? Check it out here.
Without further ado, here are six daddy blogs worldwide in no particular order:
The American Brent Almond illustrates his experiences being a gay father of an adopted son on Designer Daddy. His blog features LGBTQ thoughts, parenting adventures, adoption experiences, design projects, and superhero commentary.
He became more widely known as sticky note dad after Instagram posts of the sticky notes he placed in his son’s lunch box went viral. Brent uses his graphic design background to enliven his blog, his child, and the world.
Ich Bin Dein Vater
Ich Bin Dein Vater, or I am your father, is a German father blog written by three men, “colleagues, friends, and companions,” who work for a communication agency. They wanted to start a blog about something they cared about, like fatherhood, thus Ich Bin Dein Vater was born. Now, their blog features daddy self-help articles and honest reflections on personal experiences. From the dad blog site, you can access their newsletter and podcasts which are slightly more comedic.
Johnny speaks as a single parent of four. His blog and Instagram document his experiences with single parenting.
Johnny’s Papablog also summarizes many German children’s books before offering his honest assessment of them. Or, if you are looking for books, podcasts, and music for an older audience, he’s got advice on those too.
Nigel, an English blogger, writes DIY Daddy. He’s got five children ranging from 3 to 19, including a set of twins! Nigel’s got a background in painting and decorating, allowing him to provide his readers with insider design tips alongside reflections on twins, gender, and blogging. To learn more check out his Instagram channel.
In addition, every week Nigel uses his fame to spread the word on other dad blogs and bloggers, which is very convenient for all parties involved.
Der Vater-Sohn Blog
The Der Vater-Sohn Blog lives up to its name, illustrating the development of Richard and his son Hugo. Richard began blogging during his wife’s pregnancy which allows readers to watch both Richard and Hugo grow. Future German speaking fathers will find this blog particularly helpful: Richard describes his experience and provides other resources if you want more information, plus he has provided a vocabulary list for fathers.
This Father Life
On This Father Life, Robert blogs on his life as the father of two sons in order to remember and make sense of fatherhood.
Robert lives in England and has posted everything from child travel destinations to reflections on his father to supermarket debacles. All of his articles have a unique spin that stems from being Christian.
We hope you enjoyed this list of international dad bloggers. Their circumstances may differ but all of these fathers advocate for a more inclusive and adapting definition of dad while portraying the difficulty and satisfaction that accompanies parenting.
