Dad Blog Posts of the Week – 13th July 2018

Once again I’ve been reading though a lot of blogs this week when I got time and here is my round up of some of my favourites. I’ve not had time for a few weeks to post my roundup unfortunately but I’ve still been reading…

Funny post this one. There are many things I’ve said since becoming a parent that I never thought I would, or perhaps never appreciated that I would say. In fact, I’ll be writing a post about this in due course but I’m just trying to think of them all right now. It’s funny how these things just become the norm in your life. In this post there are so many of these we’ve said, like number 1, 2 (though watching it on Little Baby Bum just annoyed me!), 3, 7, 10, 11, and I’m sure the others will come in time. How many of these have you said?

Nothing Is Free In Blogging – For Brands And Bloggers

I recently wrote a post all about why I started blogging (here), and at no point was it to make money. However, many bloggers do make money from their blog of course, and some huge amounts. It’s important for all bloggers, in order to support the blogging community as a whole, to not give away anything for free. As this Dad said, if a brand wanted to advertise in a magazine they would pay huge amounts for space and advert development. So why should it be expected that as we write content for brands that it should be free? It shouldn’t, simple as that. Here’s this dads view on the subject…
