Pastor Drew Sams for “Teen Rap.”
Special Guest, Mack Collier (MackCollier.com)
This radio show is loosely based on this week’s “A Dad’s Point-of-View” column, What Happens When Dad Doesn’t Talk? Also, #blogchat and #DadChat and #talk.
Got a couple fun, new columns up this week. Seven Days Without My iPhone was my true adventure and the REAL challenge I faced on my recent heli-skiing trip. After seeing the new DisneyNature film “Chimpanzee,” I was inspired to write An Ironic Father-Son Story #IRL. You will immediately understand the title upon reading the column. We’ve got great guests lined up for #DadChat, with The Barefoot Executive, Carrie Wilkerson coming this Thursday, April 19 and Mack Collier of #blogchat joining us the following Thursday, April 26. Please don’t forget to mark your calendar for May 17, when Guy Kawasaki is our very special co-host. I hope you’re enjoying my vlogs – the 10th one will be posted tomorrow in the I’m NOT That Dad area. And, stay tooned for the next Because I Said So comic in which dad lets one out…so to speak…this one again taking place at the gym.
The #DadChat Tweet Chat – For Anyone Who Is a Parent or Was a Child!
All future DadChat topics and details will be posted on its own page. Following are some of the highlights of recent chats and further down, a more general overview and suggestions/tips for joining in.
#DadChat on Thursday, November 10, at 6:00 – 7:00 p.m, PST was about Sex and Our Kids. We also had two charity auctions for OUR troops and raised over $500. #DadChat, as far as I know, is the first and ONLY Tweet Chat to do charity auctions!
NOTE: My original article on our new #aDadsPov Tweet Chat got corrupted and we lost all the Disqus info – it was “My Bad” so here’s the reconstituted article with updates and all the info you need to join us on Thursdays, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., PST using the hashtag, #aDadsPov.
Some of the #blogchat participants on July 24, 2011
UPDATE: I can’t nor ever will try to compete with #BlogChat ’cause it’s the BEST. But, I’ve begun my own TweetChat based on my “A Dad’s Point-of-View” columns and experiences called #DadChat. Our inaugural chat was on April 20, 2011, and it was based on the “Love Means Saying NO” column. It began as #aDadsPov but we changed it to #DadChat. Like all chats, it will evolve but my gut says it will tend to be on more general topics related to parents, marriage, teens, relationships, and more vs. a particular “A Dad’s Point-of-View” column. The day/time is now Thursday evenings from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PST. Write me with any thoughts at [email protected].
Thanks to @womensville, @lifeonprint, @PlacesFirst, @twchat, @macknowledge, @geekbabe (for a drop in of support!), @msclocia (also a drop-in – will be with us next time), @HHTalkes, @judiknight, @thinkingparents, @ThinDifference, @MatchesMalone, @notasupermom for joining our first one!
