On More Media Request: Any SoCal Dads Out There?

From my inbox:

I work for a nationally syndicated CBS health and medical talk show, called “The Doctors”. ...

My reason for reaching out to you involves an upcoming family show that we will be taping at our stage at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, CA on Thursday, November 5th, 2009. The theme of the show is Ask Our Doctors: Family Edition. The show will feature some very special guests, our new mommy correspondent, Brooke Burke, and three Sesame Street Characters—Oscar the Grouch, Zoe, and Prairie Dawn. Brooke Burke does a lot of work in the field for us and the next the she wants to tackle is stay at home dads. She will be the liaison between stay the new stay at home dad and “The Doctors”. Ideally, she’d love to do a house call with a new stay at home dad in the Los Angeles/Orange County area that needs some help in the organization of the household while mom is at work. She will bring a lot of first hand knowledge to the table. I would love for the house call to happen this Friday, October 30, 2009 during the day. The dad will also have to be in studio on November 5th.

Are you able to connect me with any new stay at home dads in the Los Angeles or Orange County market? You can feel free to give them my name and contact information.

As always, feel free to get in touch with Alyssa directly, and please let me know if you connect.

More Blogs (and Media!)

Thanks to those who are continuing to send me blogs. I'll keep adding them. Among the new additions are:
And, in the department of media-that-want-to-talk-to-*you*, this landed in my inbox:
I'm writing an article for Working Mother magazine about the way that the recession has caused a role reversal in many families. Because the recession has disproportionately hit male-dominated fields, many fathers are now at home raising children and looking for work, while their wives become the primary breadwinners for the first time. I would like to interview fathers and mothers (aged 22 to 44 or so) who are in this situation. What are the challenges? What are the benefits? How do you work through conflicts? Please email me at saraeckel@gmail.com.
I don't fit the bill, but if you do, please flag yourself to Sara ...

The Dad-o-Sphere Continues to Grow

Those of you who were in Omaha last weekend know that I made a presentation on blogging and assorted other ways to reach out via the Internet, and I made a bold promise, given my recent not-so-impressive history of updates: I'd flag -- within 48 hours -- any convention guy who started posting. I got in at 8 p.m. last night, so the clock is ticking. I also have a huge backlog of blogs I need to feature, so here is what is going to get integrated into the blogroll:

As a reminder, I'll put any blog by an at-home dad on the blogroll, provided it is substantially about fatherhood and is regularly updated.

Back at the At-Home Dad Convention

I'm without wifi here, but really excited about what's being discussed, so I've fired up the @rebeldad Twitter account: http://twitter.com/rebeldad.
