Recap Reviews, January 31 Edition

Not only does this week’s recap close out a week, it closes out an entire month–and an important month at that, being the first of the New Year.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to link back to the entire month’s worth of blog reviews, but I will link you out to our weekly review category so you can explore them yourself, all set up in four neat little packages.  And now, let’s take a look at what we dugg up (puns totally intended, jut for fun) this week at Do You Digg It.

Week In Review, January 31, 2009

  • Our first post of the week was not actually a review, it was a request for review suggestions.  We had readers wanting to know how to submit their favorite blogs, and so another blog submission post was in order.  Sean and I also figured it was time to make this official, so a submission page was added to the site so readers can always find out how to make a blog review request or suggestion.
  • The first actual review of the week was of Anthony’s What I See Out My Window blog, a unique community photoblog experience.  Don’t miss this global affair, a one-of-a-kind effort.  Maybe even head over and submit your own view!
  • Then it was on to Peter Aldin’s Freakedout Fathers blog, a unique experience all its own where Dads connect and support each other through the trials of children and family.  It’s a decidedly male perspective on parenting, but one that both men and women stand a lot to gain from.
  • Don’t let the next parenting blog’s pinkness throw you; Katy Lee’s Adventures in Parenting blog is a place for both Mothers and Fathers to share and learn from the trials and tribulations of a Mom with the benefit of experience four-times over.  Share the adventures and share the support with Katy.
  • FInally, we turned our attention to an issue all of us wish we had the luxury of ignoring, yet everyone is touched by; Marijke’s Cancer Commentary blog is supporting people touched by cancer in any way, while delivering the news from the field.

That concludes our week of posts, and now off to do some more digging.  Enjoy these blogs and be sure to check out last week’s recap review if you haven’t already and get the scoop on more great blogs!

Adventures In Parenting

Adventures in Parenting comes to us from among the many great links on the blogroll of Freakedout Fathers. It is the parenting blog project of Katy Lee, a mother from Walnut, California, USA riding the roller coaster adventure that is parenting for more than 20 years now.

Adventures In Parenting – Why You Should Go

That’s more than 20 years of first-hand experience to share with her readers, both mothers and fathers from all around the world sharing the common goal of raising “good” kids—a challenge for sure, but one Katy Lee has risen to meet! A mother of four, both boys and girls, Katy Lee has gone through every stage of child-rearing and family life from infant to young adulthood. That’s a definite qualification for an author of a blog on parenting.

In explaining her blog, Katy Lee says,

“This site is here to talk about raising our kids to be people of compassion, integrity and character. Here you will find support for you through practical and simple advice on raising “good” kids with conservative values.
The Adventures of a parent are many – the good, the bad, and the ugly! Everything I write on this site are experiences I’ve gone through. Most of the ideas I share have been used with my own children.”

Summing Up Adventures In Parenting

Katy Lee’s Adventures in Parenting blog is a very hands-on, real-world approach to raising content children who become functional, contributing, “good” adults. Check out all that Katy Lee has to offer (including not only her blog, but podcasts and newsletters as well), and gain an ally in the fight to maintain a happy, healthy parent, child, and family relationship.

Freakedout Fathers

There really is no shortage of parenting advice or websites, albeit at varying levels of usefulness and authority. It’s probably fair to say that a great many of those are weighted more toward the female side of living with children than the male. And so it is good that there are excellent, real-life blogs and websites out there to help men navigate their own unique way around the spectrum that is life with children and family. Peter Aldin‘s Freakedout Fathers is one such place.

Freakedout Fathers – Why You Should Go

Freakedout Fathers is the work of the aforementioned Peter Aldin, Australian personal and professional coach with an emphasis on communication—which one might think is ideal for life with children, unless you have ever lived life with children. Peter is the first to admit that professional preparedness does not equal preparedness for parenthood. For that, you need more—you need understanding, comrades, and experience. Yes, that means that you might be destined to make a few mistakes and live in a cloud of doubt from time to time, but then, that’s what Peter and his blog community are here for—to give men a place to connect and commiserate and learn from the trials and experiences of each other.

Peter’s blog has the dual advantage of knowledge and experience. Peter and his blog are here to raise the issues of parenting from the male perspective, to offer resources and advice, and to help you work though them in a down-to-earth and oft humorous way through education and identification.

Summing Up Freakedout Fathers

Freakedout Fathers is an obvious choice for a Dad, but there is a lot here of value for Mothers and others, too. First off, (if the men can forgive the female intrusion) there is a lot that women can learn here about just what goes through the minds of a father, at a level of understanding not often seen that can really help couples and parents come to terms with each other’s opinions and actions. Secondly, a lot of what men go through women experience, too, particularly in these modern days where issues of work and family are shared and not solely the domain of men anymore. Not to paint the place pink, as we know Peter has his own opinions about over-feminising the male space, but this is a blog of real value for anyone facing the challenges of child-rearing; a blog with great potential to more than the audience it is intended for, with the potential to also help bridge the divide of misunderstanding between mothers and fathers.
