For several years I have really, really wanted to go to the Dad 2.0 Summit. The first time I had heard of it was when I lived in Houston, TX. It was being held in Houston. Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend. Then, when we moved back to North Carolina, I missed it again in Raleigh.
This year, I am speaking on a panel. And I am very excited! I can not wait to meet the many Dad Bloggers I have gotten to know over the years in the Facebook Dad Bloggers Group . I am grateful I will get to share what I’ve learned from the years of being a Dad, a blogger and a marketer. Will I see you there? If so, don’t be shy! I really would like to meet you. Really.
Which panel? I am told that will be announced on Wednesday. But, it is “aimed at helping blogging dads in attendance more effectively serve their audience and enable them to reach their goals amid a crowded universe of individual publishing platforms.”
Special Thanks to One Dad
Before I even step foot on the plane and head to D.C. there is one dad I really want to thank.
Doug French (Co-Founder of XY Media group) for the invitation to speak on a panel at the conference.

What is the Dad 2.0 Summit?
THE DAD 2.0 SUMMIT, started in 2012 by XY Media Group, is an annual conference where marketers, social media leaders, and blogging parents connect to discuss the changing voice and perception of modern fatherhood.
More men are defying stereotypes by taking active roles in their children’s lives, making day-to-day household purchasing decisions regarding products and services, and chronicling these experiences online. The Dad 2.0 Summit is an open conversation about the commercial power of dads online, as well as an opportunity to learn the tools and tactics used by influential bloggers to create high-quality content, build personal brands, and develop viable business models.
At the Dad 2.0 Summit, we work with a select group of brand sponsors to engage the conference attendees in relevant, fun and memorable activations at the event. All sponsorship activations must be value-adds for the conference attendees, and at the same time we create an environment for you to share brand messaging in ways that are enjoyable for everyone and provide great opportunities to build lasting brand-blogger relationships.
Will I see you? I hope so! Let me know in the comments below!
