The Bloggers of New Orleans (A song about #Dad2Summit)

The Bloggers of New Orleans

(Sung to the tune of The Battle of New Orleans, by Johnny Horton)

In 2014 we take a little trip
Away from normal life at home together we will slip
Some have little babies and some have surly teens
Yeah we’re meeting daddy bloggers in the town of New Orleans.

[Chorus:]
We dads are few but our blogging keeps a’comin’
There weren’t quite so many, not so long ago
We tweet once more, on our phones we are a’ thumbin’
“To the #Dad2Summit I am gearin’ up to go!”

We’ll look ’round the room and we’ll see the bloggers come
And there must be a hundred of ’em chantin’ “Dad ain’t dumb!”
They’ll talk ’bout daddin’ and they talk ’bout brands
They’ll do a little schmoozing and they shake a lot of hands

[Chorus]

Oh Doug French hints that he has a big surprise
I hope that he means complimentary WiFi
We’ll meet with folks who have stuff they want to sell
But if they do by dissing dads then we’ll really gave ’em … well…

[Chorus]

Yeah, we’ll listen to the speakers and we’ll listen to the panels
We’ll ask a lot of questions and we’ll learn a lot, you know
We’ll tweet so fast that the hashtags will be trendin’
At the #Dad2Summit where I’m gearin’ up to go

We’ll get fresh shaven by the friendly folks from Dove
Then share about the kids at home we’re missin’ and we love
We’ll all file out for some rounds of karaoke
And sing together songs until our daddy throats are croaky

[Chorus]

Yeah, we’ll listen to the speakers and we’ll listen to the panels
We’ll ask a lot of questions and we’ll learn a lot, you know
We’ll tweet so fast that the hashtags will be trendin’
At the #Dad2Summit where I’m gearin’ up to go

NOLA, here I come!

This will be my second year at the Dad 2.0 Summit, and I am beyond stoked. Also, terrified, as I am actually speaking this year, on a panel discussion about marketing to and about modern dads. If you’re interested in following along, keep up with the goings-on by following me on Twitter and watching for the hashtag #Dad2Summit.
