Brilliant Dad Feature week 104 

This week our brilliant dad feature is James who blogs at Blog of dad. He writes under the pseudonym ‘James Smith’. He uses a pseudonym because he wants to protect his daughter’s anonymity, while at the same time writing honestly about his experiences as a father. On his blog he refers to his daughter as ‘Hannah’ and his wife as ‘Emma’. Again, these are not their real names, but they allow him to tell the story of their lives in a way that others can relate to, while still maintaining privacy. His daughter is just under 1 year old and… [Read More]

Brilliant Dad Feature 100. It’s Me!

Celebrating A Century Of Brilliant Dad Feature’s Tomorrow 

The Brilliant Dad Feature is 100 weeks old tomorrow. I never for one minute thought that when I started it, it would still be going 100 weeks later, but here we are! I remember clearly when I thought up this idea for a weekly feature on my blog, that if I got 20 dads to take part that would be awesome. The fact that there have been 100, with many more to come is just so hard to believe! When I decided on the questions I knew I didn’t want too many. Just questions that would hopefully make dads think about… [Read More]
