Always entertaining, The Apocalypse Daddy is the self-styled “Alternative Dad Blog.” Mark Fielding (the writer behind the Apocalypse Daddy) uses stories, movie parody, philosophy, particle physics, remote learning and Schrodinger’s Cat to explore the fleeting beauty of childhood, the universal joys and frustrations of parenthood and what it means to be a father in 2021.
Some say a dad blog is no place for using Reservoir Dogs as a tool for exploring the cost of raising children; similarly, that sibling rivalry and sleeping patterns are too serious a matter for Shakespeare parodies and such humor and poetry should be kept for YouTube and podcasts. Some say Buddha, Bob Dylan and Marcus Aurelius speaking at length about the resilience, mind-set and unending positivity of children is no substitute for a security gate review. Some say the Apocalypse Daddy is a breath of fresh air, a diamond in the roughest year on record. Therefore, you should read on and decide for yourself.
Wilderdad is an online magazine, dad blog, and outdoor gear shop that encourages families to have outdoor adventures together through stories to inspire, advice to guide, and gear to motivate. We believe the outdoors holds a key to building a happy family.

He combined that need for guidance through fatherhood and his family’s love of the outdoors to create Wilderdad. It shares fatherhood advice and family-friendly ideas for outdoor adventures.
Steve believes the outdoors holds a key to building a happy family. We believe spending time outdoors, whether urban parks, lakeshores, or remote mountains, teaches confidence, creativity, problem solving, teamwork, self-control, and respect for each other and nature.
