This brave blogger is Pieter from http://pieterk515.wordpress.com/ , a proud dad and cool blogger you should all get to know. Always makes me laugh.
Pieter – I admire your guts, a first male author in a feminine neighbourhood!
BTW, this kind of caught me by surprise.
I mean, when I created Parents-Space.com I visioned it as a site for parents, not for moms. Perhaps it’s because I share my life with a partner who is equally involved in our children’s life.
Then it striked me: I am constantly addressed by male bloggers who say they want to become PS contributors, and disappear.
DDB, the “daily disappearing bloggers” (you know who you are).
Hey listen, it’s not about committing to a relationship, guys. Don’t get me wrong, you’re great. It’s just that I’m already committed.
I’ll explain again:
It’s about discussing parenting issues. You’re parents, right? Good! Bloggers? That’s all it takes!
So I said to hubby – women are from Venus, men from Mars. What is it with these guys, don’t they have parenting issues, or are they leaving it to their wives to handle, while they are busy running the world?
I mean, look at the world. Why don’t you leave it for us to run. It couldn’t get any worst than it already is.
“Dear, you are not even close. Us men, we share same thoughts as you, we just don’t share your outrageous need to tell the whole world about it” he said politely.
“Example”, I said.
“For example, men usually have this thought about their children being more attached to their moms. No matter how much they’re involved in their children’s life, they always have this thought. Only they don’t need to discuss it”.
“No way”, I said. You don’t need to discuss it. You’re a “non discussive” man. You’re a secretive person. Men are not different from women, most of us need some kind of audience, attention, something.
So there we were arguing about the differences between us, when he suggested to pass me a list of parenting topics that I could write about, from a daddy point of view.
Isn’t it a great idea?
He is working on the list now. And good news – 2 more of this rare species “proud-daddy-cool-blogger” are joining PS contributors.
Looking forward to blogging with you guys. No commitment, don’t you worry.
See how cool a PS contributor looks ?
