After last week’s wild ride and scavenger hunt about photos, we’re turning to video – specifically mobile, but really all video – this Thursday, May 16th from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET, at #DadChat. There’s a FAB new app from Ptch - and it’s FREE for your iPhone! Download and play with it before #DadChat, during, or after. Our topic is how we preserve, capture, edit, and otherwise do our family videos. Our wonderful co-host is none other than TheGoToMom herself Kimberley Clayton Blaine! Follow Kimberley @TheGoToMom for the chat. Check out Kimberley’s awesome ptch page! Read what Fast Company has to say about Ptch! But, it wouldn’t be #DadChat – of late – if we didn’t have some prizes – which, of course, you will have to earn! Read on about Ptch and our prizes for this week’s #DadChat!

With male and female roles changing so significantly in recent years, I’m wondering how much this may have affected our egos? Do you compete with your spouse or significant other? Yes, we all likely say we wish nothing but the best for our partners, but deep inside do we feel envy sometimes? I think this is one of those semi-taboo topics that aren’t aired much, which means, of course, I’m going to wade right into it.
Hours of video were taken on our cross-country road trip last summer, from Los Angeles to Boston, driving my son to begin his freshman year at college. It was an eventful road-trip, replete with break-downs, surprises, and flea-bag motels. Enjoy some of the highlights in this short 8-minute video of the top sites!
We all want to preserve our best family memories? What do YOU use? A still camera, cell-phone, video-cam, tablet, or do you sketch in charcoal? Samsung is sponsoring this week’s #DadChat – just in time for Mother’s Day – on Thursday, May 9 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET, and giving away two amazing prizes! Our discussion, as always, will center around our community and this oh-so-relevant topic to everyone. How do we best preserve our memories? How do we share them? Which platforms do we use? What software? What do YOU want – feature-wise – in YOUR camera?
How many men do you think are afraid of their wives? If “afraid” is too strong a word, how many men believe they must walk on eggshells in their wife’s presence? What marriages do you know – well – that are successful and appear happy? I chose the word “appear” because no one really knows what is going on inside another’s home and life, so all we can make is educated guesses based on how well we know people.
