Exciting things continue to happen here at The Father Life! Back in 2007 when we launched, there was a dearth of dad-centered content on the web. That very fact was part of the reason we started The Father Life, but we weren’t alone in the observation or the response. While websites for dads haven’t yet overtaken, say, websites devoted to instant weight loss scams, we’re getting closer! “Daddy Bloggers” is a term that’s started to pop up in the media (thanks, “Mommy Bloggers,” for paving the way), and there’s even a dad blog convention coming up next year.
With all of that great dad content now on the web, we decided it was time to re-launch DadTRENDS.com, a sister site (or should that be brother site?) to TheFatherLife.com. The all-new DadTRENDS.com features links to what we term “the best of the dad-o-sphere.” You’ll find links to some of the great dad blogs as well as some of the more established dad-focused websites. Bottom line, if you want to know what today’s dads on the web are saying today, you want DadTRENDS.com. Check the site out today!

In other news around the web, FastCompany.com featured a couple of new/upcoming products that we found absolutely fascinating. First up, the new iPod docking station from Bose. The technology that goes into this thing is amazing. Details here: http://www.fastcompany.com/blog/linda-tischler/design-times/new-ipod-speaker-system-bose. Also, Volkswagen has announced that they’ll be mass-producing an electric car by 2013. Could it be the Beetle of the 21st century? Only time will tell. http://www.fastcompany.com/blog/kit-eaton/technomix/vws-electric-e-beetle-21st-century.
