The GreatDad blog has been a wasteland for the last few months and I apologize for the lack of interaction. Family life goes on, the kids keep growing up, and I keep having reactions to things, but haven’t had time to blog. Instead, we’ve moved and relaunched a magazine (the venerable Pregnancy magazine lives again!). And still, there have been doctor and dentist appointment, parent teacher conferences, as well as 7 colds (2 for kids and me, and one for my wife) and one 4 day long bout with the the norovirus, a noxious vomiting virus that affects some 20 million people each year I’ve come to learn.
I also attended Dad 2.0, the first successful attempt to bring a lot of blogging and media dads together to discuss the cultural and commercial role of dads in the internet age. And what a time that was, meeting and catching up with friends from Dadlabs.com, MrDad.com, Howtobeadad.com, TheSpohrsareMultiplying.com and many others. We drank too much but enjoyed being around a bunch of guys who all share the same belief in the importance of fathers.
I’m back, with no less pressure in my day job, but a desire to keep on writing about things that matter to me as a dad, especially since my editors won’t let me write about anything on pregnancy.
See you around.
