Loyal or new readers of Dadnabbit, after the first of the year you’ll start to see something different on Dadnabbit. Content. If you haven’t noticed, and it’s possible you didn’t, we haven’t been creating or writing a bunch of new content lately. Life sometimes gets in the way. It’s not an excuse, just the reality of being parents with a full-time job. A year ago Jeff Giles asked me to help out when I was let go from my previous job and I did what I could, which wasn’t much. (37 posts in total says the site) Despite that output from me, Jeff fired himself from the site and offered me the keys.
FYI – for those of you who love Mr. Giles, he’s not going away completely. We plan to launch a monthly podcast with Bill Childs, Stefan Shepherd, Dave Loftin and Jeff Bogle after the first of the year and will be be a vital part of it. We will still continue to do our popular Desert Island Discs, My First Record and Conversation features.
My hope is to make Dadnabbit more than just a place for CD/DVD reviews, but more about the joy and pain of fatherhood. Kindie music will still be a vital part of what we do, but hopefully we can write about more than just music. Apps, webcomics, games, books, etc.
So, I’ve assembled a team of dads to help make a go of this. A lawyer, an unemployed lawyer, a teacher, a musician, a veteran, a gamer and genealogy geek, a dad-to-be, a beer runner, a new dad, a dad of teenagers in addition to others who have offered to give us their two cents on fatherhood. With all of us having full time jobs, we’ll do our best to bring you quality content on a regular basis.
So pardon the dust and we look forward to a rejuvenated Dadnabbit in 2013.
