8 Dad Bloggers Who Really Get This Whole Parenting Thing

Our favourite insightful, hilarious, and honest blogs from some truly awesome dads

We all know more than a handful of amazing mommy bloggers—everyone has their fave sites they hit up for advice, tips and tricks, a sense of community, recipes, and endless other information that only mothers know. We love the world that's been created by (and for) all the wonderful mothers who can connect and feel that they're not alone.

But now, it's time to usher in the era of the Daddy Blogger. 

More and more fathers have been popping up to give us their parenting perspective on their dad-centric social media accounts, websites, and books on the subject. And just because these guys are hands-on parents whose kids are their universe, that doesn't always mean they have any more of a clue how to navigate this crazy world than the rest of us moms—but it's pretty entertaining to watch them try! 

Here are some of the insightful, hilarious, and honest blogs from 7 awesome dads:

Chris, the Canadian Dad


Getting our #SubwaySandwish on before a sports filled night.

A post shared by Chris Read (@canadiandadblog) on Aug 2, 2016 at 4:19pm PDT

On Canadian Dad, Chris shares his thoughts and stories of being a dad, the evolving role of fatherhood, and how to get connected with some of the other great dads out there with their own stories to share. He has great content that discusses life with his two children, such as what he does to stop himself from being a helicopter parent to nurturing kindness in his children.

Rick Shetty

This dad blogger writes about having three young kids, his perspective on parenting, and their adventures. Currently, Rick and his family are on a round-the-world one year trip! They’re hitting up cities all across Asia, Africa, The Middle East, South America, and Central America and blogging about it along the way. If you’re looking for tips and insights on family travel, this is the guy you’ll want to go to.

Mike Reynolds


The people who shape my future.

Mike, aka, Everyday Girl Dad, shares his experience as a father on Twitter, where he regularly posts about feminism, raising young kids, and some funny interactions with his family (like when one of his kids said they had the best time ever with him… except for when they had more fun yesterday with mommy). Mike also has a website where he sells feminist shirts that promote valuing the women in our lives and treating our daughters with respect and allowing them autonomy. 

Warren Orlans: The Urban Daddy

A post shared by The Urban Daddy (@theurbandaddy) on Dec 19, 2015 at 7:59am PST

Warren, who boasts the title of oldest Canadian daddy blogger (est. 2004), has a knack for being real and sharing his life and family in a way that’s relatable. He’s got three kids all with special nicknames on the blog, and while updating us on the daily shenanigans of life as a father, he includes some great ideas for families to try out: like how the GTA Home & Reno Show can be a fun, family outing where you can get the kids involved in brainstorming your home design.

How to Be a Dad

Despite their blog name, “How to be a Dad,” Charlie Capen and Andy Herald don’t claim to be experts in ‘dadology’. Instead, they discuss parenting when you’ve got no idea what to do, using humour and as much love as possible to get through it all. They’ve got relatable parenting stories, like the 'Baby Sleep Positions: H is for Hell' or their 'Zombie vs. Baby' comparison. You’ll be sure to get a chuckle out of their posts.

Not having a father growing up can make it kind of scary when you decide to have kids of your own. Clint, a former dad-less kid, shares that vulnerable feeling of not knowing what he’s doing. But, now that he has three kids, he’s figuring it out as he goes along and delivering authentic, honest stories—like when he had to pull his tantruming daughter out of a restaurant after she threw chicken fingers—about the beautiful, exhausting, confusing journey of being a parent.

Buzz Bishop

Buzz created DadCAMP as a way to initiate a community for fathers and since then his blog has evolved into a space where discussions abound about parenting issues, fathers in the media, personal confessions, and cute stories involving life with his two sons. 

James Breakwell

Father to two daughters (and a pig, if his bio is to be believed), James Breakwell, aka Exploding Unicorn, has been tickling our Twitter funny bones for quite some time now. The dialogue between him and his 5-year-old is not only side-splittingly hilarious, it also hints at the innate wisdom of kids and pokes fun at himself with satisfying regularity.
