A while ago, someone commented on another article of ours saying that we only focus on moms and that we never bring up dads in our articles. Well, boys and girls, fasten your seatbelts, because we are going to land in daddies’ blogosphere!
After all, raising a child is a different thing for every human being, not to mention men. You’ll see that some of these dads are very crafty, while others don’t really know what to do with their babies. No matter their abilities, they are all extremely funny and wise, so let’s check them out:
Although not a single dad, Josh adores his kids and actually started a blog about them. He considers himself to be a fun, loving and caring person, always doing what his wife tells him to, so this should be pretty interesting to read! And no, he’s not talking about diapers, milk and toys, let’s just say that he’s more into technology, reviews, and travel.
A typical dad, like some of you may think. However, it’s interesting to see how he manages to mix his family and his passions, how living in a small town is affecting their family life and much more. His motto is “Staying Awake behind the Wheel of Life”. You guessed right, he loves driving!

Daddy Knows Less (daddyknowsless.blogspot.com)
Justin started this blog while being in denial about becoming a father. Realizing that he doesn’t know anything about being apparent, he began writing down his fears and expectations. Fortunately, almost 6 years later, all the fears are gone, but he admits to not having learned much about what he’s supposed to do.
However, his daughter Peanut is incredibly funny as you’ll see if you read Justin’s stories. In fact, this blog is not just about being a dad or becoming one, it’s more about becoming a family, about the changes that a family goes through once they find out they’re going to have a new member. We recommend that you read Daddy Knows Less on a regular basis, it’s fun and very educational!
English Dad in New York (englishdadinnewyork.com)
Christopher is originally from England, but moved with his wife to New York a few years ago. He has a son that he absolutely adores and spends most of his time trying to raise his son according to both the English and the American culture, which sometimes proves to be a real challenge.
Combining the European spirit with some good ol’ Americana symbols has never been more interesting, so check out his blog! You’ll not only learn what’s like to be a brand new dad, but also a brand new American, which is really interesting to see, because sometimes we take things for granted and don’t realize how much other people work to have the same thing we got at birth: the citizenship.
Are We Still Cool? (arewestillcool.com)
This is in fact the question that was going through Eric and Laura’s minds after finding out that they were going to become parents: are we still cool now that we have kids? In 2008, Eric and Laura, named Cool Dad and Cool Mum in pretty much every post, moved from Florida to New York looking for new possibilities. They had to look for jobs and raise their 1.5 year-old son, while also welcoming the new baby.
You can read more about this family’s pursuit of the American dream and even get in touch with them by sending them a message. The noticeable thing about this dad blog is that it’s not just about taking care of kids, but also about struggling to make a living and teaching your kids the right ways at the same time.
