As another month of blogging on Canadian Dad sails by, I have decided to unleash yet another feature that I hope will catch on and stick around. I have been so fortunate to have met so many great bloggers, who are all so willing to help out with anything, that I thought it would be fun to give a little back by featuring some of them on a weekly basis.
Seeing as how the Mom to Dad blog ratio is so lopsided, I thought it would be cool to highlight a few of the great Dad blogs out there so you could get to know some of us a little better. We’re really not that bad, I promise!
What better way to kick it off, than to feature a Canadian on Canada Day! I’d like to introduce you to James from the blog EduDad!
I first met James on Twitter, as I do with most of my blogging friends, where he goes by the handle @SaskaDad. He gets his Twitter name because he grew up in Nipawin, a little town in Northeastern Saskatchewan.
I guess the best way to cover all the ways James is the man, is to use his Twitter bio, where he describes himself as a Dad. Husband. Teacher. Minivan. Some hair. Some gut. Strong coffee. Guitars. Songwriter. Blogger.
One thing that really sticks out about James’ blog is the fact that he is a very talented musician. You can check out his About Me page for more info about his music career, but I’m talking about a cool feature he does, where he writes Theme Songs for other Dad Blogs that he likes. He’s done about 7 of them so far, including this one about the guys over at How To Be A Dad
Awesome right!? My favorite part about that one is his kid playing in the background.
James is a really cool Dad and is someone I consider to be a down to earth person. He has some tragedy in his life and isn’t afraid to write about it in a very open manner. He’s a super nice guy, a great writer and an amazing Dad. Oh yeah, and he’s Canadian!
I hope you’ll give his blog a read and I’ve even picked out a post for you to start at! He recently wrote a very touching piece about his daughter, who they were told would never have normal vision. The post is entitled “She Makes the Ordinary Extraordinary” and it’s well worth the read!
James, you’re an amazing Canadian, Dad, Musician and Teacher and even though we may never meet, I’m happy to know you and appreciate what you’re all about!
Happy Canada Day Folks!!!
