I spend a disgusting amount of time on the internet. I spend more time on the internet than the average person. I know this to be a fact. How? Because it’s a part of my job — not the parenting job, the other paying job) — to read, research and write about a myriad of different topics.
So what do I do in my down time? MESS AROUND ONLINE, OF COURSE! And I updated this website. In order to keep up with the current topics, trends and issues of parenting it’s necessary to consume other parenting blogs. And not just any parenting blogs but the best parenting blogs online.
A massive number of those parenting blogs are run by, and focus on, mothers. However, there are more than a few dad blogs that are absolutely killing it in terms of appealing to fathers of all ages and interest.
This post is a collection of dad blogs and websites that every father (and mother) should check out on the regular. Some are hyper-focused on parenting and being a dad, some are dedicated to the dad lifestyle and a few are just damn fun. Here’s a list of the best dad websites and blogs to bookmark for future reading enjoyment.

The one constant seems to be that there’s always something to worry about and as a result it’s easy to get overwhelmed. By sharing our stories, advice and Heart Talks, The Dad Website aims to inspire modern men to become better dads and to raise great kids.
