Brit Mums - Dad Group

Todays post is an invitation to a blog hop, it is aimed at Dads and in particular Dads who are members of Brit Mums.

Brit Mums is a network of 3500+ parents who blog, as the home page says...

"BritMums is the UK’s largest and most influential network of parent bloggers -- who write about everything from family life, to food, travel, health, politics, green issues and much more. Our mission is to encourage and support our members and the high quality, ethical blogging they do. We’ve been doing it since 2008 and we're passionate about it."

So why is this hop aimed at Dads... Well within Brit Mums is a small Group of Dads who are welcomed because we too are parent bloggers. Some blog purely from a parenting angle, some like myself are general bloggers who are parents and now and again, that influences what we write.

The purpose of this Hop is to allow Dads to get to know each other a  little better and also to create an easy access list of these Dads. Hopefully it will get Dads to interact with each others Blogs more, and in so doing promote the small but growing group.

Today the 15th of April the Linky List goes live, the plan is that on next Sunday the 22nd of April, all who have signed up will make a blog post with answers to the following 5 questions.

  1. Why do you blog?
  2. If you could choose a performer to see in concert who would it be?
  3. How is your blog influenced by you being a Dad?
  4. What is your favourite film?
  5. Who gets up for your kids in the night?

Simple questions, you can answer by pictures, text video. Whatever style your blog normally takes.

So here is the list, I would ask that you take the code where it says "Get the code here" and add the list to the bottom of your own answers on Sunday the 22nd of April. That will make it easier for everyone to hop from one answer to another. It would also be good if we can all use our chosen social media to spread the word about the Hop during this week. Lets Show the Mums that we can organise ourselves !

So to summarize, sign up now, use your blogs main address not a specific post, then write a post answering the questions on Sunday 22/5/12

So... If we're writing the post, say, today, you want it linking up here next Sunday or can it go live now?

Just to clarify, the ideal would be to add a link to your blog today, it doesn't have to be to a specific post. My link for example is By adding a generic link to your blog today, other people will be able to check out your regular posts during this week.
Then on Sunday 22nd publish a post with your answers to the 5 questions. That will allow everyone involved to know they can find your post on that day.
