As we’ve said many times before, until we’re blue in the keyboard, the bedrock of all the commerce that will be brokered at the Dad 2.0 Summit is the eloquent voice of fatherhood–in blog posts and videos, over the radio waves, even in books and screenplays. That’s why we’re asking five men to present their unique, “three-headed” perspectives (as fathers, content creators, and social media professionals) on dads and blogging, in a session we’re calling “TEDnite” (because each presentation will be 10-15 minutes long–shorter than TED, longer than Ignite).
We’re excited and honored to announce that these five fortunately fast-witted fellows are:
- Caleb Gardner, The Exceptional Man
- Alan Kercinik, Always Jacked
- Jim Lin, Busy Dad
- Ted Rubin, TedRubin.com
- David Vienna, The Daddy Complex
We’re also proud to champion our content by asking five bloggers to read their posts in our Dad Blogger Spotlights. When we asked for submissions last month, the quality and quantity did not disappoint. The selection process was arduous, but we’re delighted to announce the winners:
- Carter Gaddis, DadScribe
- Black Hockey Jesus, The BHJ.com
- Whit Honea, WhitHonea.com
- Kevin McKeever, Always Home and Uncool
- Chris Read, Canadian Dad
Congratulations and very big thanks to these men for their writerly skill, their willingness to share their stories, and their commitment to the dad-blogging community!
