Recently I have been thinking a lot about connections. Connections with old friends, making new friends. I even guest posted about this over at Discovering Dad recently. As I have been posting as a Dad blogger I have come to find that there truly is a community of guys out there that want to talk about their experience being fathers and talk about issues that relate to men in specific. I have met some great individuals through cyberspace and have connected with them in various venues such as through my profiles on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter or Linked In.
I have go so far as making my own fan page for Dad of Divas, with limited results. I have joined a number of facebook groups aimed at dads including:
I also lately have been a bit more active on the Art of Manliness Community site, and even had a chance to meet in person with one of the members that was visiting in my area. We had a great lunch and I am looking forward to keeping in touch with him.
I am very interested in hearing people’s thoughts on how they connect with other dads. Have you made friends through social networking, blogging, or other venues? How do you balance these friendships with being a father, husband, employee, etc.?
