Another Sort of Payday

Well, if you have not checked out my BLOGROLL before, I'll let you in on a little secret. It's long. There are a lot of dad blogs on there, and it gets overwhelming to try and keep up with. I have quite a number of dad-blogs that I read... Both regularly and faithfully.

Reading through all these blogs, some posts catch (and keep) my attention more than others.

One of my favorite features of other blogs is the regular "weekly summary" of posts (from other bloggers) that the author enjoyed. It's a nice way to get a taste of, or introduction to other dad-blogs I may have never known about before.

Honestly... I cant imagine being able to keep up a schedule - posting once a week.

So, what I'd like to try is to start a bi-weekly (once every TWO weeks) compilation of posts that I feel deserves some extra attention.

I'll will try to post them on Payday - because... well, because Payday makes the Father of Five a happy-boy. Happy-boys like posting more than un-happy-boys.
But... in all honesty, I SHOULD not be all that happy. The money that is deposited in my account on Payday is not really mine. No.. The money belongs to my mortgage company, my car loan company, my insurance office, the gas company, the electric company, and to a couple of miscellaneous credit card companies....

When it's all said and done, and I get to see what little I am left with after the Government and everyone else get's their portion of my paycheck, I am sad to see what little is left of what I earned... That (you would think) would make me an un-happy-boy.
I'll try and come up with some sort of cute name for this "regular feature" (like the FOF Observations)...
(but to be honest - "Another Sort of Payday" does not sound all that bad!)

Here are the first group.

Do you role model Forgiveness? by Discovering Dads
This post is a couple of weeks old, but very insightful and even more inspirational. I started to leave a long comment on it - but never had the time to finish it like I wanted to. So, instead - I'll give it some attention here instead.

This is a series of articles on Discovering Dads where a select group of dads answer a question from one of a select group of moms have asked. Topics include "Honest Communication", "Flirting", "Porn", "Mom's Body after Baby", and "Quality Time".

Dear Pedophile by Black Hockey Jesus
BHJ writes a (satirical) letter to the local "alleged" pedophile who frequents the kiddy-pool in his Homeowner's Association. If I cant, I'd like this guy (BHJ) to be looking out for my kids at the pool!
(Caution: BHJ's Blog Title (not posted here) may not be considered "apporopriate" in certain circles)

Why I can't Relax by Daddy's Toolbox
Wow... It takes A LOT to get me to feeling emotional about most things. This story really left me feeling... feeling... I guess it left me feeling thankful and lucky. I too feel like I can not relax - but this is a whole different level. Very moving post.


  1. Well from a time management point of view, thanks for grouping some good reads!

  2. What a great idea!! I have read through them all.

    Even though the Pedophile post is about a serious matter, the way it was written made me laugh......loudly.....and a lot.

    The real joy was the picture of the creep at the end of the post.

    I am totally adding Black Hockey Jesus to my blog roll!
