Promote your blog and introduce yourself

If you enjoy this post, make sure you subscribe to Be A Good Dad to receive new posts in your email or feed reader

Time for you to promote you own blog.

I read a lot of blogs.  Mostly I end up skimming titles and only reading the stuff that catches my attention.  I’m looking to expand the number of parenting blogs in my feed reader and I want your help.

In the comments below, please tell me (and all the other readers of BeAGoodDad) the name and URL of your blog and the name and URL of one of your favorite posts.  Also, feel free to leave the name and URL of one of your favorite blogs that you read that I probably haven’t heard of as well as one of the better posts over there.

That means at most there should be four links.  I’ll delete anything with more than that and I will also delete anything that really doesn’t fit over here.  No blogs about Mesothelioma or anything like that, please.  It should be about parenting or at least entertaining.

Be aware that there is a good chance that Akismet will put the comment into the moderation queue since it has a few links in it.  If it doesn’t show up by the next morning, feel free to use the contact me to let me know and I’ll go approve the comment.

How About Two? October 2, 2007 at 8:22 pm

Mike –

I’m guessing that our readers are the same folks, but I’ll direct my readers here in my next post.

In the meantime, be sure to check out Cry It Out. Funny, funny stuff.

I wish I was half as talented.

Hi, via the Squeaker’s dad. :-)

My blog: Goddess in Progress

It’s all about the twins, baby!

Trevor October 3, 2007 at 5:49 am

Hi,

Squeaker’s Dad sent me over, so I thought I’d pop by. Just a quick browse around and like what I see so far – I’ll look forward to reading some more! I’m not a solo daddy blogger; my wife also contributes, as does my six-month-old son.

Anyway, here are my links.

My blog: Which way’s up?
There aren’t too many posts to pick from yet, but here’s a recent one that I like: What’s in a name?

And one of my favourites is The Smarshy Files, although he’s been pretty quiet lately.

strugglingwriter October 3, 2007 at 8:01 am

My blog is here: http://strugglingwriter.wordpress.com/. I write mostly about writing there, but also about parenting as I have a 16 month old.

I don’t know if I have a favorite post of mine, I have a hard time judging my stuff. Here is a link to my posts on parenting: http://strugglingwriter.wordpress.com/category/parenting/

Here’s a link to a blog I really enjoy that is also about parenting and writing: http://www.helenparocha.com/awasalarmed/

I’m not quite sure how to describe my blog… I guess you could say its rather bloggy. I’m a parent, and I do write about that a bit, but I don’t consider it to be a mom blog so much, as I don’t go on and on about every spit bubble and bowel movement.

Hey there! I read about your post on An Island Life.

I’m a 38-year-old working mom from Nashville to two little girls and I tend to write about the humorous side of parenting.

One of my favorite posts is about those obnoxious shopping car “carts.”

http://blondemomblog.com/2006/03/20/hell-on-wheels/

As far as blogs you should check out there are two other Nashville bloggers I’ve been reading since I started blogging two years ago: http://www.busymom.net and http://www.Suburbanturmoil.com.

I have also been a fan of Mrs. Flinger (www.mrs.flinger.us) for a long time.

Jamie (Blonde Mom Blog) October 9, 2007 at 8:31 pm

Oops. That’s http://mrs.flinger.us

Thanks!
