2018 In Review: Fortitude, Fingernails, and Festive Leisure Wear

dad2summit2019 Dad 2.0 Summit, Announcements, Dad Blogger Spotlights, Fatherhood on Friday, News

Here we are, on the calendar’s edge, with a new year just a page away. Trying to sum up any year is a tall task–especially a year like this, which feels like it began around 20 years ago. As always, then, our touchstone through the chaos was the stories that dads told about their lives.

There were dad stories everywhere, more numerous and variegated and straight-up bona fide than ever. These are the real reviews of 2018 that we hold dear.

And so, in the season of drummers drumming and lords a-leaping, we offer up our summary of 2018 in the voices of 28 bloggers blogging.

From all of us at Dad 2.0 Summit, as we transition into 2019: “Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”



For us, the best summary of our Year In Pictures manifested brilliantly in our Top Nine. Such a perfect cross-section of humor, heartbreak, and (tortured) hamstrings. Many thanks once again to everyone mentioned below who allowed us to share their work.


Recently, we’ve announced a new Sponsor, two rounds of Speakers, and our Scholarship winners! And there are a lot of big announcements on deck, including Speakers Round 3, our second Suite Upgrade giveaway, and the next five inductees into the fraternity of Dad Blogger Spotlight readers. And stay tuned for our new podcast!
