The Eighth Birthday of the Fatherdad Blog

On this day eight years ago I made my first post on fatherdad.com. That was the first ever post by a black "daddy blogger." I searched high and low for one before I determined that I was it. I think that post is a hilariously bad and somewhat profound (and very much unnoticed) internet milestone. [...]

IT’S TIME FOR DAD’S WELLNESS

Wellness Wheel When I first got into blogging about six years ago there was this constant urge to, if not overwhelming obsession with, trying to convince the world that good dads existed, especially the so-called good black dad. But in relation to the internet six years ago might as well be sixty. Since then [...]

IT’S FATHER’S DAY

This is my tenth Father's Day. When my first one came around my son was about 6 weeks old. By then I was officially among the ranks of the sleep deprived and utterly confused. Since those days there has been a lot of living going on. Growing too (especially Dev who is now 9 feet [...]

FOR OUR 6th BIRTHDAY WE MOVED!

Six years ago in this month I started the fatherdad.com/African American Dad blog through Malecare Inc. Since then I have been writing and working on a so many projects in addition to my regular 9-5 work that I am kind of dizzy. Even when I have gone radio silent for long stretches, I'm usually busy [...]

Hey, Where Did the Summer Go?

I'm not the biggest fan of the summer. I don't like being covered in sweat when I get to work. I don't like being devoured by evil hungry mosquitoes. And I despise flying beetles sneaking into my home getting caught in my ceiling fan's down draft and landing in my sleeping face. I also don't [...]

Fatherdad’s Summer Round-up So Far…

When I'm not supporting public charter schools in the area of finance and accounting, building my non-profit (Black Dad Connection), publishing a book, designing a website, performing weddings, and just generally keeping busy as a father and husband I am, well, doing other things. For instance I read, play with toys, and generally don't sleep. [...]

ONE DREAM THAT WILL NEVER BE

I think about the dreams of mine that have come true over the last few years and I am appreciative. I published a written work, I wrote a book on black fatherhood that I will be publishing as an eBook in the coming weeks, I am Executive Director of a non-profit that I started and [...]

APRIL 2011 REWIND…

April 2011 was one of those months that I can look back on and smile. It was filled with love, vindication, and fun. The love part was when I had the opportunity to preside over the nuptials of one of my oldest friends. It was a chilly Sunday morning, Palm Sunday to be exact, when [...]

YOU CAN WIN

For some reason Charlie Sheen thinks he is winning. It's one of his catch phrases after all. Sure he's rich and famous but he's also fired, and kind of a jerk. Sadly he's in denial about his seriously deep issues. In my book he's losing. He's losing big. He's a dad and he needs to [...]
