There are always more and more Dad bloggers coming onto the scene every year. Some will hang around and go on to be very good solid bloggers, but like anything in life many will fall by the wayside, when in truth they find out how much hard work goes into making a successful blog.
At the beginning of last year I wrote a post about bloggers to watch out for in 2017. So I thought I would give my opinion on who I think will hopefully be big in 2018.
I have been blogging just over three years and it is without a doubt very addictive, but also very satisfying. Did I think I would still be blogging three years later? Honest answer is no, but I’m glad I am. This is my corner of the internet and something I’m immensely proud of.
There are five Dad bloggers I have been reading all year that never cease to amaze me with their dedication and hard work. So I’m hoping for them that 2018 is as successful for them as 2017 was for me.
So here we go. These are my five Dad bloggers to watch out for in 2018, and they are in no particular order.
1. Dad V World written by David Shaul
First up is David who is the author of Dad V World. David is one of hardest working bloggers I know, but he works hard across the whole spectrum of blogging, everyday he does an instagram story, and on a regular basis he pops up on my You Tube feed. He in truth is covering all the angles of the blogosphere.
David will without a doubt be hugely successful in 2018, because he is dedicated and he wants to be successful. Already towards the end of 2017 I saw all the hard work pay off.
One particular post by David I loved was Have I been keeping it Real? A very honest, but also to the point post. Watch out for Dad V World in 2018 and check out his blog, you will not be disappointed.
2. Corporate Dad written by Phill Palmer
I have been reading Phill’s blog since he arrived on the scene sometime ago, he is a very accomplished writer. Phill writes on many subjects and always conveys his message in a very concise way, that is always interesting to read.
This year Phill entered the vuelio Top 10 Dad Bloggers list for the first which is an amazing achievement and throughly deserved. I personally think we are going to see Corporate Dad move up to a different level in 2018.
I think Phill is capable of writing about anything, and one particular post which was a rollercoaster of emotion, was about his journey of IVF and the postcode lottery of IVF: The NHS Postcode Lottery Our Journey. It’s a fascinating insight into how the NHS and IVF works and sometimes how just very unfair it is.
Check out Corporate Dad. It’s a blog on the move and will be another powerhouse in 2018
3. Adventure Brown written by Lewis Brown
I only discovered Lewis a few months ago, but wow he made an immediate impression. I love his writing style and sometimes the pure randomness of his blog posts. His honesty in his writing is actually a rare commodity and one particular post that I actually struggled to read without a lump in my throat was Depression and fatherhood, One of the reasons was it was very close to home for me.
Lewis is also an absolutely fantastic photographer and many of his posts are about photos he may have taken.
His family day out posts are also wonderful to read.
Adventure Brown has the makings to become one of the best Dad bloggers in 2018. It is always well written and a joy to read. Check out Lewis’s blog, Adventure Brown, I’m sure you will love it as much as me.
4. Daddy Poppins written by Benny Finlay
Next up is easily one of the funniest men in the blogosphere. Benny never fails to bring a smile to my face, in fact laugh out loud on a regular basis. One post that sticks out for me this year was The Truth About Flying With Kid’s. It’s so very funny, but all completely true if we are honest with each other.
Benny has appeared on TV this year and he has won a couple of awards which is completely deserved. His style of writing is unique and hilarious.
Daddy Poppins is star of the future and 2018 is the year I think we will see him go onto bigger and better things.
Check out Daddy Poppins, you are guaranteed a great laugh with a lot of his posts.
5. DaDult Life written by Zen Terralonge
Zen has definitely arrived as a new dad with a very unique take on fatherhood. I have always loved reading blogs where I hear about dads points of views on parenting.
Back in July I came across a post called 50 Days of Fatherhood 50 Fast Thoughts From A First Time Father. I love it, a brilliant idea and interestingly it took me back to when my children were babies and I thought, yep! That’s how it was exactly.
Zen also writes about places to go with a baby and how easy or difficult those trips can be.
Zen also writes about fitness and in particular running and raising money for the Great Ormond St children’s hospital.
Zen is a very accomplished writer and writes with passion and every post is always interesting with a message that he conveys so well.
So check out DaDult Life. This is a dad blogger I’m expecting to see hit the blogosphere in a big way in 2018.
So there you are my five tips for 2018. Dad bloggers who I think will all do really well and I believe all of them will achieve great things in 2018. Look out for them.
Do you have any favourite Dad bloggers you think will do well in 2018? I would love to hear.
