This Dad’s Fatherhood in Review: November 2011

One year.

Did you happen to read all 25 posts this month on The Dadabase? Just in case you missed a day or two, I’m here to make life easier for you today. Just click on the title of a post to be magically transported to the not-so-distant past.

Jack turned one year old this month and he learned to officially walk. Reoccurring themes in November included “American perceptions of manhood” and “TV shows I despise.”

This month’s titles were consumed with countdowns: Nearly 1/3 of November’s posts contained a number followed by the word “things” or “reasons” or “ways” and/or “this dad.”

Could it be that readers are more likely to click on the title and read the post if it follows that formula? Just take a look on the right side of the screen where it says “Most Popular Posts.” I’m taking a clue from the fact that everyday at least two of the most popular ones are some kind of countdown.

Before begin your time traveling adventure, remember one more thing: Mail me your family’s holiday card so I can put in on my fridge; you will be seeing my fridge frequently in weeks to come:
