I posted something along these lines on Twitter yesterday – though obviously confined to the 140 character limit Twitter imposes… which, let’s face it, I’m amazed I ever manage to actually adhere to! I ramble, you see. But I suspect I’m making that point quite well now…
Anyway, as I mentioned in the post below this one, I’m hoping (all being well) to ‘remodel’ my blog as a bit of a “Daddy Blog” – not solely a daddy blog I should point out, but that’ll probably be it’s primary focus. Before anyone points it out, I KNOW there are already HUNDREDS of other Daddy Blogs out there. But when should a bit of competition ever put anyone off?
Like most bloggers, I’ll be doing this for fairly obvious reasons – a bit of networking, a nice way to save my thoughts on various subjects, a tiny bit of vanity, and a lot of wanting to share hints and tips. What I’m also hoping to do, which probably differentiates this from a lot of other blogs, is to invite other dads to join in with guest posts and discussions.
I’m not arrogant enough to think my opinions or tips are in anyway exclusive to me as a father, or indeed the same as any other fathers. So I want lots of different pespectives!
The only criteria is: You can spell and write to a basic level, and you’re a father. That’s it really! Obviously I shall retain a bit of editorial control, but I don’t intend to change anything people post really, and as a Marketeer, you can guarantee that I’ll be doing everything I can to promote your posts!
As I mentioned on Twitter, I’m going to do this over the next few weeks, but if you’re interested in becoming a guest-poster, leave a comment below so that I have a (non-Twitter) record of who is interested. Let me know how I can contact you in your comment, too. That’s all for now!

Hi HenrynAs I mentioned yesterday my wife is expecting in about three weeks and I would love to share some of my experiences as a new dad. I have found this type of info really useful and think it would also help me to examine some of my own thoughts and feelings in different ways.nnEasiest contact is probably directly on twitter @Kitchencrazed or would you peter e-mail too?n
I think it would be great to help out, I enjoy rambling. You can reach me via Twitter @LumpsRGood or through gmail at that same handle.
I’ll ramble with the best of them. Twitter handle is dan_bowsher and you can add @yahoo.co.uk to the end of that for my email address.
as mentioned on twitter I’d love to contribute. my gmail handle is the same as my twitter one.
Yep, still interested whenever I get a moment. Will message you email address!
I cannot guarantee my spelling will be better than a 5 month old! But i can guarantee i will write about a 5 month old! bjc20(a)bath.ac.uk
