We Are HUGE Because Parents Fucking Love Us!!!

Well, actually, we are huge because Parents loves us. They really, really love us! Last night we heard from our blog-friend PetCobra at DadCentric that we’d been named to Parents magazine’s list of its five Favorite Daddy Blogs. According to Parents, we’re “a little better than most blogs.” Did you read that? A little better! That’s us. And do you know why we’re a little better? Because we’re “magazine writers.” And don’t you forget it. We work in a dying medium that pays dismally and that nobody really cares about, and that makes us a little better than everyone else. You hear that, Mom? Still wish you hadn’t paid for my education?

Our pal DadCentric made the list too, but WHO CARES? We’re gigantically, fantastically, wonderfully, superbly, extraordinarily famous now. Everyone should read us all the time because we’re great. Or at least Matt is, considering that he’s the only person mentioned in the writeup, and the photo was of him. He is the famous one, and we are his unpaid, exploited, far-better-looking minions. Not that we’re jealous.

We’re also huge. Seriously.

    Congratulations!

    You should work “a little better” into your logo.

    Beta Dad: that is a fantastic idea, and already my personal motto. –Theodore

    Most excellent! A left-handed compliment is better than no compliment at all, right?
    Er… right? I say run with it.

    At least they meant well.

    And that mention was how I ended up being a fan of your blog — and getting my husband at least mildly interested in reading about other dads.

    Yay.

    Let me imitate a mommy blogger- “That is a stupid list that inaccurate. Most of those guys are new.”

    “It is a popularity contest- you know that they paid for their ranking.”

    “This sucks.”

    The “compliment” is now part of our About page: http://www.dadwagon.com/about/

    We were excited when “Cat Fancy” named us to their list of Top 250 Blogs Not About Cats. (And Jack – sadly, it ain’t just the mommybloggers that are hatin’.)

    If you haven’t made enemies than you haven’t done much blogging. I was really proud of my first death threat. Now those suckers are old hat. 😉
