What We Want for Each Topic on Dad-Bods
Here’s a brief wish list for the type of articles we are looking for, er, I mean, for which we are looking. . .for
Dad-Bods is a pretty elite group of handsome, intelligent, sensitive, sexy, loving, caring and nurturing parents and/or individuals. But you don’t have to be any of that to write for us. Well, except for the “individual” thing. That’s like, being a person.
And if you are not a Dad-Bod, feel free to submit a positive, helpful article and we’ll make you an official Dad-Bod.
Someday soon, I will have a Facebook page and a mailing list. I just have to figure out how to do it.
I’m a pretty laid back kinda guy, but my feelings do get hurt quite easily. So, if you submit to this publication, please try not to hurt my feelers with your article.
You know what TO do: follow writing and submission guidelines from Medium and Dad-Bods. They’re practically the same thing. There should be an article under the Submission tab trying to explain them.
You also know what NOT to do: no misogyny, misandry, sexist or racist bullshit, LGBTQ-phobia, etc.,. Also, don’t write “How to. . . on Medium,” articles. Booor- ing! No, seriously, there are plenty of articles about Medium out there that are very helpful. I refer to them frequently when writing, and while building this publication. No need to put them here, too.
Write to have fun, deliver a helpful message to those of us suffering from/enjoying our Dad-Bods, tell a story about your life, marriage, divorce, kids, dating, sex, etc.,. Humor is my favorite, but it’s not exclusive for submissions.
Also, and most importantly, I am new to owning a Publication. I will do my best, but please have patience with me. Like others, I have a full time job and other responsibilities besides writing. Dad-Bods will be a work in progress for a while as I learn how to change and adapt it to make it better.
Here are the general guidelines for the topics:
Tell us about exercise and dietary regimes. Tell us about health issues you have and how you are dealing with them. Talk to us about mental, physical, and emotional health issues that follow or exist for men as they age, and how you are dealing with them. You get the picture. Speaking of pictures, you know how, in the submission guidelines I said I wanted original photography if possible? Feel free to use free, accredited professional photos from the free sites here. Or not. Use your own if you wish. Just, please, keep your clothes on.
By Women for Dad-Bods
Ladies, we would love to hear your positive opinions on all things men. No haters allowed. Give us advice on health, love, dating, sex, cooking, divorce, marriage, and, heck, even women. Because even though I understand you completely, most men really don’t have a clue (in my opinion). Also, please feel free to submit high quality original photos with your work.
Tell us your SIMPLE recipes. I’ll write an example and explain it under the topic, with a picture of the actual food made by yours truly. So, if you submit a recipe, shows us some good pictures of you making it(you don’t have to show your identity if you so choose), and the final product.
We would love to see some of your stories. SHORT excerpts from books that tell us a story and gives us an idea of what the book is about(with a link to your book is okay). But only one excerpt from one book. And if you have written a ton of books, try not to flood me with excerpts all at once. Spread them out about a month a part, please. Also, flash fiction, which I understand is 500 words or less, is preferred.
Men, if you are happy in your marriage, tell us about it, give us advice, what works for you, what your spouse’s opinions are, how the two of you manage the household, work, kids, etc.,. If you are unhappily married or divorced, same thing. Tells us what works, if it was rough or simple, if you remain friends, etc.,.
Yeah, a rough one here, I think. I do NOT want stories about how you are successfully cheating on your spouse. I want stories on, well, Dad-Bods dating, finding love, and sex related issues. Examples would be: how you handle intimacy with a new spouse or significant other after a divorce from a long term marriage, re-marriage opinions, living alone,first dates, etc.,. I really don’t need to know the nitty-gritty of it, just. . .a story.
After reading the above topical guidelines you are not sure if and where your story fits on Dad-Bods, submit it anyway. I’m flexible. I’ll read it and let you know.
I am so looking forward to hearing from you! Best of luck in your writing and your life!
With Love and Sincerity,
