I mentioned this in our thread over on the Disboards, but thought it would be easier to keep track of here. If you are interested and willing to become a regular DISDads.com contributor, please comment below. What I’m looking for, primarily, are people willing to do a couple of things:
1. Post regularly to this blog (frequency would depend on the number of volunteers we get to do this, but my goal is that we get 8 volunteers who are each willing to post once/month, which would give us two fresh blog posts/week).
2. Participate in a podcast – at this point, I’m thinking that once/month is a good starting point. If we develop a following and we all get into it, we can consider doing it more frequently. I’d like to get three Dads who’d be willing to join me. We’d probably record in the late evening (after the younguns are off to bed). My plan is to do a recorded Skype teleconference. It doesn’t have to be the same three Dads every month. A rotation would be great too – fresh perspectives and all. Once we get a group of participants, we can start brainstorming topics. In true DISDads form, I’d like to keep the podcast fairly short – no more than 30 minutes. If we end up with more than 30 minutes worth of content, maybe we can cut it up into multiple episodes.
Once we get those two things up and running, we can talk more about using other social media to promote our blog and podcast (like our existing DisDads group on Facebook).
