Dad Blogs Exposed! – Busy Dad Blog

After a great response from my first Dad Blogs Exposed feature, I’ve decided that this one is here to stay!

This week I want to introduce you to one of my favorite Dad Bloggers. Jim Lin is the Dad/Blogger/Ninja behind the very popular Busy Dad Blog!

Jim is a very active father of two kids and is relentlessly funny! Busy Dad was one of the very first Dad Blogs I came across and is one of the reasons I decided to start blogging in the first place.

One of my favorite parts of the Busy Dad Blog is the Lunchbox Daily feature that Jim does. Everyday, he draws a picture on his son’s lunchbox before he sends him off to school. The pictures are seriously bad-ass and only further prove my point about how cool it must be to have him for a Dad! Here’s a Sneak Peek at one of the amazing pictures!

Amazing right? Not that he wants people stealing his ideas but if you can draw and want to do something like this, he gets his supplies from the fine folks at Mabel’s Labels! Don’t worry Jim, I have NO drawing skills whatsoever, so your feature is safe my from site!

In sports, Jim would be considered your classic “5 Tool” player. No, I’m not calling him a tool! His posts range from funny, intelligent, sincere & downright ridiculous at times! He makes great videos, such as this one of his baby doing the popular sport of Parkour!

I think the only thing he’s not doing at this point is producing a Podcast and I’m not even sure that he isn’t doing that! It would definitely be worth checking out if he is though, lol!

One of the most important things I’ve noticed about Jim is that he seems like a genuinely nice human being. He doesn’t know me from the next Canadian Dad Blogger but he always treats me with respect in all of our interactions on Twitter, email or even on his blog.

Jim is a testament to the Dad blogging community and I really encourage you to check out his page. That sounds a little butt-kissy but I mean it, he’s a really cool dude!

You can catch up with Jim on Twitter @BusyDadBlog and on Facebook. He also writes at the Pop Culture site Mama Pop.

I hope you enjoyed today’s feature! Feel free to leave Jim any love messages in the comments section and I hope you’ll come back and visit again!

Cheers!

    Wow. I had no idea I was THIS awesome! Thanks for pointing it out to the world.

    Honored to be a part of this and also a part of the growing contingent of oversharing online dads!

      There is definitely a lot of over sharing! Ah well, no one reads us anyway, right??

      You are pretty awesome though.
