Daddy Blogger Singapore


Views from Daddy M



Challenge of the day
  1. Google Daddy Blogger Singapore
  2. Count the number of Daddy bloggers in the first ten pages
  3. From there, try to create a top ten list of Daddy Bloggers in Singapore

Did you managed to complete the challenge?

Fret not, I could not do so either, no matter how hard I try. I even toy with the idea of a a top 5 list from the results generated and I barely could make the list.

Now do the same for Mommy Bloggers. Within 3 pages, you probably can do a top 20 if not a top 50 list. There is even a secret club called Singapore Mommy Bloggers with over 150 Mommy Bloggers on board.

My theories for this are as follows
  • Mommies gets 4 months maternity leave vs 0 for Daddies. Thus no time for Daddies to document the kids' journey (time for paternal leave !)
  • Daddies finds it un-man to get a blog
  • Daddies are too busy at work , thus no time to go online to blog
  • Daddies are shy creatures, preferring to be behind the limelight
For today's post, I would like to pay tribute to a small bunch of hardworking and active Daddy Bloggers in Singapore. It may not necessary be Google standard, but at least it can be a list you can  reference to. The list will feature bloggers with content that is 80% oriented to family and parenting.

The Wacky List of Daddy Bloggers in Singapore
All rights belongs to the following Daddy Bloggers
In my humble opinion, a very productive and friendly Daddy. Andy is the father of 3 boys and 1 girl (kowtows to that)He aims to 'bring you fun' in Singapore and beyond. Read about his many adventures with his kids in Singapore and beyond.
Father of 2 girls and 1 boy. Ed loves to write about his parenting journey. Follow his adventures, challenges and victories as a young father.
Triple the fun. Triple the Trouble. Father of 2 boys and 1 girl. If you need an activity to do in Singapore, look no further. Kelvin fills the blog with activities that would provide you the resources you need to plan a day out with kids.
Father of 2 girls. Check out Isaiah's parenting journey through this avid photographer. A blog with reviews, food and daddy's view on parenting.
Father of 1 boy. Kelvin is a full time working Daddy who attempts to blog all interesting aspects of his son. An avid photographer and a self pronounced 'crazy gadget freak'.
A unique way of communicating with his son, Winston writes weekly letters to his son. Topics range from shaving tips to dealing with his death. An intriguing read. Whoever says Daddy blogs are all about photos should take a read at this. Incidentally, he had set up Blogfathers!Sg which is a collation of Daddy Bloggers in Singapore.
Young Father of 2 boys and 1 girl. Patrick Shares his children interesting discoveries and thoughts on parenting.
Father of 2 boys. Vincent blogs about his two boys growth with occasional good food and photography tips.




As much as I try to search, sadly I can only find 8 other active daddy bloggers in Singapore (9 if you include yours truly). I am sure that there are more out there, so if you are willing to share, do drop me a mail and I would gladly add you to the list.

There are some things I had observed amongst Daddy Bloggers
  • Our kids are the center of our attention
  • Most Daddy Bloggers are fantastic photographers
  • We have one main aim for the blogs we set up. Telling the tale of parenthood through Daddy's eyes
For the rest of the daddies (and Mommies) , we hope you will be inspired by the above blogs to set up one yourselves. It is through sharing of your experiences that you would make Daddyhood a joy for others to emulate. I can say, with hand on my heart, that I am inspired by some of the above blogs to share my experiences of parenting and family lifestyle.

Do share with us your links if you decided to give it a try.
In the meantime, to the Daddy bloggers.... keep up the good work!

  11. Happy CNY to all,

    Rather surprised and delighted to find this page... I don't really call myself a real blogger... I just like to document the things I love to do with my kid, sort of like a online diary... in my case my passion is travel and cafe-hopping. check out mine if you like:
