Done? Great, welcome back, grab yourself a beer and sit down for this one. So, I still find myself a Dad trapped in a Mommy blog world and it keeps getting bigger. I am amazed that in a short period of time I have had 3500 views and developed 21 followers. I have been awarded for my blog and the comments keep rolling in. My most viewed post is about taking a shit and then followed closely by two posts about mishaps in my life. This tells me that people enjoy reading about my family's pooping habits and relish when I have a bad day. That's a good thing because I will never be out of material for my blog.
As I said though, I am still trapped in a Mommy blog world and that is starting to disturb me. It disturbs me because in this world the Mommies get the credit for everything and the Dad's (or Hubs, Hubby or Dumbass as some call them) get shit on and made out to be an incompetent idiot who can't do anything right except for dragging his knuckles and drinking beer and even if Mommy has a rough day, she still comes out looking like a superhero.
Obviously this is not just in the blogosphere but trickles into Fakebook as well. We won't go down that path as it has been beaten to death about Fakebookers. I follow a few blogs and it is a combination of sarcastic, ranting Moms and the over dramatic, look what I did all day long and still got dinner on the table because I am the epitome of a minor deity. For the sake of not having to retype these I will call them Team Awesome and Team Shut The Hell Up.
With that being said I have joined a challenge/competition/man cave group called Dude Write. This is to show the people in the blogosphere that there are more than Mommy Blogs out there. It's kind of like the Original Star Wars Trilogy were the small band of Rebels fight the Empire, with the Dads being the small band of Rebels and the Mommies being the Galactic Empire.
I am submitting my Did You Spray In There? post for my first submission as most people have enjoyed that particular one. After this each submission will be and has to be an original. Wish me luck!
I am not taking ANYTHING away from the Mommy Blogs I read, because they are awesome but the time has come to show the world that the Dads out there can be just as funny, witty and parentable (new word I made up) as the Galactic Empire of Mommies.
Go and check out me and the fellas over at Dude Write or click the cool little button right below. Enjoy!
