This is going to be a brief post and possibly my shortest yet. I’ve committed myself to an exciting project with a rather tight deadline. Time, as they say, is of the essence. To cut a long story short, I had an idea for a book ages and ages ago. I promptly forgot about it until I bumped into Tim Atkinson at the MAD Blog Awards. Talking to him about his excellent book, the idea popped back into my head and I found myself blurting it out.
To my amazement, Tim thought the idea was a good one and we are now working on it. To get it available in time for Christmas. I kid you not. The book in question is about dad bloggers.
There are plenty of us about, but we are very much in the minority in the parent blogging community. I thought it would be nice, therefore, to use and abuse Tim’s experience and connections to release an anthology of already-blogged posts by us dads to get us all a bit more attention. He agreed. Top man.
So I guess what I’m asking in a roundabout sort of way is for dad bloggers to submit their favourite posts. Ideally, they need to be about being a dad/what your kids get up to rather than something like one of my random posts about slippers.
All I need are the links to the specific post and your Twitter name so I can contact you when questions inevitably spring to mind. I’m afraid that there is no payment involved, just the smug satisfaction of seeing your words in print. Trust me though, that’s a wonderful feeling that you can’t put a price on!
