I recently joined Digital Parents, an Australian community of parent bloggers. As I’ve started to focus more on parenting I thought it could be interesting to start building connections. As part of the community, each month bloggers can submit their best post for the past month which is then listed on one of the blogs from the community to create a blog carnival. This month it is hosted by Mums on the Go.
It seems that most are Mummy Bloggers or people writing for mums, but there are a few other fathers. There is a range of posts including:
- Personal reflections on being a parent (e.g., Six surprising phrases in my mummy vocabulary, Letting Go… and The Dad, the Kids’ Birthday Party and the Potential For Disaster – Day Three)
- Advice on parenting or life in general (e.g., 9 super tips for surviving on a single income and 5 Things to know about your brand new baby)
- Sharing major life events (e.g., When the unthinkable happens… and The 40th Birthday Present I Didn’t Expect)
- Opinion pieces, inspired by personal experience (e.g., Does Blogging Glorify Mental Illness? and Can’t judge a marriage by their facebook photos)
There are some interesting posts. I decided to submit my post on The paradox of inconsequence. I don’t think it will be all that popular, but that’s OK!
