With my blog, No Idea What I’m Doing: a daddy blog, I have brought some significant attention to my writing.

I have been featured on Good Morning America, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. My most recent essay in The Washington Post
went viral. It was in the top most read articles on their main page for
five days. It was republished in Singapore, Australia, on The Chicago
Tribune, and in so many local papers that I lost count. I have been
published in The Huffington Post multiple times this year. My writing has been translated into four different languages. My most recent publication on Scary Mommy was shared 357K times. I have also placed essays in The Good Men Project, Fast Company, and elsewhere.

Now, it’s time for a book, and I’m coming to you to make it
happen.  Titled “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things,” it’s a
collection of my most hilarious essays, lists and advice on family and
marriage. Many of these essays have been published in major publications
or on my blog. 8 of them are new, and can only be found in this

Like everything I write, this book is hilarious and
thought provoking and real. It’s going to reinforce family, fatherhood,
and marriage, and help parents realize that, well, it’s okay to have no
idea what you are doing. We are figuring this out as we go.

Publishing a book will be an amazing opportunity to take my already
proven message on parenting and marriage to a new audience. It will also
help me fulfill one of my greatest life goals, to publish a book.

Please help me to continue to help other parents through my stories.
