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.)

Nicely written and wonderfully funny, TwoBusy concerns the poetical musings of its pseudonymous author, who moonlights at the group blog DadCentric. Although the posts are sporadic, TwoBusy’s writing offers great insight, like the time he and his wife get a check-up:
“We checked in at the front desk, then sat our asses down in the uncomfortable and too-narrow chairs that, ironically, seemed to define every OB/GYN office we ever visited – as if OB/GYN office managements region-wide had come to the strangely embittered decision to select office furniture custom-designed to make legions of pregnant women even more uncomfortable than pregnant women generally are.”
There are also reviews of books and albums and a recurring lobster motif. Why the lobster motif? Even TwoBusy himself doesn’t know for sure, but perhaps the blog is like the dish: It’s not on the menu every day, but when it is, it’s the best thing going.
