Another blog that inspires me tremendously is AllProDad.com, which was started with Tony Dungy's help.

We are looking for married couples to be guest on our web show, The 7 Rings of Marriage Web Show. I also need men (husbands and dads) to be guests on my podcast, The Family Leader Podcast. I'm also looking for sites to write guest posts for.

Be consistent. When consistent I've achieved the most results with my platform. When inconsistent my results have been up and down.

I see my blog as the place where men (husbands and dad) come for hope and practical tips to help them be the best they can be.
