We love tooting our own horns, and in fact, we had a rib removed so we could do so. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that 8BitDad made Babble‘s Top 50 Dad Blogs of 2012. Not only that, but we came in at #25, which our math department advises is almost halfway up the list!
As you might have remembered, we didn’t make Babble‘s 2011 list. So, we took all of our writers, put them in a sausage maker, and fed them in wiener form to all of the new writers. It worked!
Serge Bielanko, friend of the show, got some internet heat recently over this photo he posted back in July. It was one of many in a gallery for an article called Old Work Boots & Camouflage Cargos: How NOT To Let Your Man Fall Out Of Fashion. Not long after his article was published, the photo was featured on Babble’s Facebook page where MOMS ATTACKED.
Serge is a caring writer and loving father. The initial comments were prejudice, hateful and dug into his soul. “What the heck were these people so upset about? Did they not read my article? I’m HER DAD!”, he wrote in a followup piece. Is it fair to judge a person because of a single picture? Absolutely not. But it is a photo… on the internet.
