 top 20 mocha dad posts

2013 was a great year for Mocha Dad. I got to discuss my perspective on father in several media outlets including NPR, HuffPost Live, and CNN. My video series on Kids in the House earned me a voices of the year nomination. Most importantly, I was able to write over 200 blog posts to share with my loyal Mocha Dad readers. Your encouragement, comments, and social media shares inspired me to keep producing content that helps parents, specifically fathers, connect with their families. These were the top 20 Mocha Dad Posts of 2013:
