Views from Daddy M
To the new readers who 'landed' here due to the Weekender article, a very warm welcome. You may like to get to know a little bit more about us here. Feel free to explore our life journey and enjoy your stay here!
Challenge of the day
- Google Daddy Blogger Singapore
- Count the number of Daddy bloggers in the first ten pages
- From there, try to create a top ten list of Daddy Bloggers in Singapore
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
This is also the list of Daddy Bloggers that had in someway or another inspire the launch of TheWackyDuo.com.
The Wacky List of Daddy Bloggers in Singapore
|All rights belongs to the following fathers|
Blogfathers!Sg which is a collation of Daddy Bloggers in Singapore.
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
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!
This is TheWackyDuo.com first foray into print media. If you ask me a year ago if I had envisioned this, I would have told you pigs could fly. Never in my wildest dreams that I would one day be classified as a 'writer'. If you read back on entries on this journal in its early days, you would know what I mean.
I would like to thank Weekender for the opportunity to immortalise this article in print. I know it is in the archives of public domain. I know that some day when the children try to research a little bit of their daddy, they may be able to find this article that will shed light to why this journal exist.
Till then , " Oink Oink "
I think I just saw a pig in the sky!
PS : In case you are wondering, the photos on the paper are not us or any other Daddy Bloggers. It's stock photos! We actually look like the photo below. A little more *ahem* handsome if I may add...
