We've updated the list: To view 2012's Top 50 Dad Blogs, click here!Why do a Top 50 Dad Blogs list now? Haven't dads been blogging just as long as moms? Do we really just like making these lists? Here's the truth: At Babble, we've been waiting for this moment for years. No, this is not the beginning of Dad blogging - far from it - but it is the first year in which Dad blogging is making it to the masses in a big way. Whether it's a single post that gets over 114,000 "likes" on Facebook or a riveting panel discussion at the Mom 2.0 Summit or the hilarious (but effective) #occupyBabble Twitter campaign, Dad bloggers are gaining more recognition with every passing month. In the process, they are also changing the way we think about fatherhood, parenthood, and exactly what is possible for men raising families. So here they are, our first ever picks for the Top 50 Dad Blogs - from the well-designed to the most provocative, from the funniest to the most useful. We hope you'll find this listing most useful, and will discover (or rediscover) the great voices within its ranks.(View full list here.)

Christopher Dean | English Dad in New York
He likes his toast done on one side … but he loves his son.
As the name of his blog suggests, Christopher Dean is a native of the U.K. who now lives in New York with his wife and their almost-two-year-old son, Max. Both funny and heartfelt, English Dad discusses what it’s like to be a new father in a (sort of) foreign country, an ocean away from his own family.
The highlights of English Dad are three original recurring features: Milestones, in which he relates a big step Max has made; The Last Word, in which his wife steps in and explains what really happened that day; and Out of 10, in which he grades his parenting abilities on any given day. He may have given himself a 2 out of 10 on a recent day on which he argued futilely with his fussy son, but we give the post about it full marks.
