New Features!

In case you haven’t noticed, dear faithful readers – and the casual stumbler – there are several new features on Daddytude.  I’ll just a take a few moments of your time to point them out:

  • I’ve added ratings to the posts. I’d really appreciate your time, even if you don’t leave a comment, just click on the stars and let me know what you think of the post.  It’s anonymous, free, and gives me some good metrics on my writing – or the usefulness of the post.  (Right now, the only metric I have is the number of hits per post – and that’s not much to go on.)  I still would appreciate comments – but I understand if you don’t.
  • Have you noticed the SocialVibe widget? Click on it and help supply clean drinking water to children in developing nations.  It’s free (Well, it may take some of your time, and time is money, but other than that, it’s free!).  Just watch and rate a short video by the sponsor and they will donate to Charity: Water.  My readers have already donated close to 200 gallons.  Let’s see if we can get that up to 1000 gallons by the end of the month, shall we? (scroll down and check it out!)
  • There’s a new Facebook Fan Page. I’d love to have you join.  It’s a great way to discuss posts, suggest post ideas, and give me more personal feedback.  Plus, we are almost at the point where we can get a customized URL!
  • Delicious Links! As I roam the interwebs, I often come across interesting sites that I save to Delicious.  Those that pertain to family, parenting, and dads are now available at the bottom of the right-side column of the blog.  Take a look and let me know if there are other links you’d like to see there.  You can see all of my links here. (If you’re a member of Delicious, make sure you friend me!)
  • Comics! As you may have noticed, I’ve posted some of my Toonlet Comics lately.  I’ve been drawing comics since I was a kid – some with rave reviews.  The problem is, I have better ideas than drawing skills – Toonlet lets me overcome that limitation!
  • RSS Feed update.  If you’re following the RSS feed, I’d appreciate it if you would use this link.  Of course there are others, but the Google/Feedburner link allows me to get the most accurate data on my readers.  (Don’t worry it’s anonymous – doesn’t even record your IP address)
  • One last thing, I’d love to hear what you think of the relevance of the links in the Blogroll.  Do you have sugestions for sites I should include, or eliminate?  Let me know by clicking sending an email to:

gwalter /at/ daddytude /dot/ com

That’s all! Thanks for your support and for reading about my journey and figuring out the important role of being, not just a father, but a dad.

I remain a man with a Dad Attitude!

    It’s great to start sharing what we have learned and give a way to get to those sites. Great job!

    Hi there, I’m always happy to help another SV member, I support Charity: Water too. Good luck with your cause.

    If you get the Feedburn Feedsmith plugin, you don’t need to bother your readers with trying to get the correct feed. Everything gets forwarded to your Feedburner feed. Works great!

    I notice your “contact me” page is included in your blogroll. That seems to be a strange place for it. I’d expect it to show up in your page menu at the top.
