Tops in Pops: The Best Daddy Blog Posts of June 2008
I am proud to present some of the very best daddy blog posts out there. Every month, this ongoing blog carnival will spotlight extraordinary dads — finding out what’s on their minds, and in their hearts. I hope you enjoy this month’s selection, and I look forward to your comments.
And now, the best of June…
Premature Baby – An Emotional Journey by Discovering Dad, posted at Discovering Dad
Nominated by Chris @ Dad of Divas, who states: “I have been amazed at the story Jeremy weaves about the early birth of his new baby daughter who was a premie, and has had close calls with death and numerous medical issues. Jeremy captivates his readers leaving us wanting more and more and only hoping for the best for little Caitlin.”
How To Survive A Manssage, posted at BUILDING CAMELOT
A humorous retelling of a couples massage gone awry, when Tyler from Building Camelot makes the supreme sacrifice for his pregnant wife – receiving a manssage from a therapist named Bruno.
If I Had My Child to Raise Over Again, posted at Clif’s Notes
Clif’s Notes shares a powerful reminder to us about being in the moment with our kids, instead of trying to control it.

In addition to being a dad, Paul is also a pastor. This brief post gives insight to his passion for life, God and his dedication to family.
Since When Are Dads Not Important? Posted at Dad’s House
A divorced dad struggles to keep himself involved and informed about what’s going on in his son’s life. From school field trips to doctor’s visits, he seems to be the forgotten parent – constantly left out of the loop.
First Time Parent, posted at Harrowed Parent
John is a new dad, and a new blogger. The post he submitted is a detailed look into the first few weeks of fatherhood. Great for dads who still have that new car smell. Albeit masked by “projectile vomit.”
Dads are not second-class parents, posted at Daddy Brain
This was my first Daddy Brain post. Still one of my favorites, it covers some of the issues modern day dads face – including how we feel about being away from our kids all day, and the rampant misconception that our job as a parent is limited to depositing the sperm and the weekly paycheck.
That’s it for this month. If you’ve read an awesome daddy blog post, or written one yourself, here’s your chance to shine (or help a fellow daddy blogger shine) by submitting a post you feel is “Tops in Pops,” for next month’s blog carnival.
Submit using this carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

Very cool…for this month I will have to submit one for myself maybe… never know!
Wow! What an honor to be included as part of this great group of Dads and articles. Thanks to Chris at Dad of Divas for nominating me. It was a hard series of articles to write about a scary time for me and my wife, but hopefully it did some good by sharing what we went through with others. Thanks again – I Stumbled your blog, submitted this to Mixx and gave you a Digg. Good stuff, and I like the nomination process of the carnival – I haven’t seen anyone else do that in the Dad blog niche.
Sweet! Thanks again for including me! I’ll definitely try to write something that I can submit for the next round.
You are doing such an incredible thing by recognizing real dads.
I’m so glad to have discovered this website and look forward to reading your writing.
All the best,
Thanks for including my article! There are lots of great articles here! I especially like Jeremy’s series on the premature birth experience with his daughter. It’s very genuine and moving.
