      --  Digital Dads was started in 2009 by C.C. As a long time blogger
          and media producer, he noticed that whenever he wrote about his
          kids or family it attracted more attention than anything else he
          created. As he searched the web he discovered there were very few
          sites writing about being a dad, by dads and he decided it was
          time to have a site where he could share his thoughts.
