We've updated the list: To view 2012's Top 50 Dad Blogs, click here!Why do a Top 50 Dad Blogs list now? Haven't dads been blogging just as long as moms? Do we really just like making these lists? Here's the truth: At Babble, we've been waiting for this moment for years. No, this is not the beginning of Dad blogging - far from it - but it is the first year in which Dad blogging is making it to the masses in a big way. Whether it's a single post that gets over 114,000 "likes" on Facebook or a riveting panel discussion at the Mom 2.0 Summit or the hilarious (but effective) #occupyBabble Twitter campaign, Dad bloggers are gaining more recognition with every passing month. In the process, they are also changing the way we think about fatherhood, parenthood, and exactly what is possible for men raising families. So here they are, our first ever picks for the Top 50 Dad Blogs - from the well-designed to the most provocative, from the funniest to the most useful. We hope you'll find this listing most useful, and will discover (or rediscover) the great voices within its ranks.(View full list here.)

John Cave Osborne | John Cave Osborne
When it rains, it pours, as John Cave Osborne well knows; it took just over
a year for him to go from single dude on the town to married father of four,
which is what happens when you marry a single mom and waste no time having triplets.
Osborne has established his unique – and hilarious – voice on his eponymous website as well as here on Babble Voices. He isn’t afraid to address topics such as “Accidentally Pissing Off Legions of Pregnant Women,” as in a recent post, and does so with wit, intelligence, and brutal honesty.
Through it all, Osborne has managed to keep his sense of humor. His “Modest Proposal”-like piece on why Tiger Woods should marry Kate Gosselin is quite funny, and his recurring feature, “Celebrity Boobs,” highlights the Anthony Weiners and Hugh Hefners of the pop cultural world.
