When you have a movie opening soon in theaters that’s essentially a documentary about your daughter (ok, it’s a lot more, but still) and you have little money to market it, you better get pretty damned creative with your marketing. And you better get your sorry ass in gear and start blogging, too.
That’s why I’ll be in Atlanta for the next 3 days at a noteworthy event called the Modern Media Man Summit. Saturday morning I’ll be speaking on a panel called “Over-Sharing: When it comes to your family, how much is too much?” It’s meant for bloggers but could there possibly be a more apropos topic for someone who makes personal docs about his family (not to mention, his teenage daughter!)?
If nothing else, the Summit should bring up lots of food for thought. How are men experiencing fatherhood these days? How are they writing about it? Will the “daddy blogger” movement ever grow to anywhere near the level of “mommy bloggers“? Where oh where is the male Dooce?
I’m bringing along my adorable new notebook laptop, will take it all in like a sponge and hopefully be a bloggin’ and twitterin’ fool. So check back often, I’ll be updating my posts throughout the event.
