Credit where credit is due. The idea for this blog was actually dreamed up in collaboration with a co-worker, way back in twenty-ought-five, long before I was actually a dad. My co-worker, who was a dad at the time, actually started a blog called “The Dad Beat”, which is still up, here (last post in 2007). I think he also owned dadbeat.com at one point, too.
I’ve invited the original Dadbeat dad to collaborate on this, and the invitation remains open. We’ll see how it evolves…hopefully this doesn’t end up in the kind of legal entanglements thrown into sharp relief in that awful film about Facebook. 😉
