We’re Out, But the Tournament Marches On

It’s official.  As of last Thursday, Dad in the Middle is officially out of the Kidmin Blog Madness competition, and that is no April Fool’s joke! We squeaked through in Round 1, but the stiff competition in Round 2 just turned out to be too much for this little blog. While we actually garnered more votes in round two than round one, and even almost snuck into second place, we ultimately succumbed to the great final round are part of the cream of the crop of children’s ministry blogs.

The four blogs that made the final are frequently featured in the The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol. I am in the final stages of putting together March’s installment of the Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol, and I thought in honor of these four blogs I would feature some of my favorite posts from each blog over the course of the last month. If you are not familiar with these blogs, you should be! Perhaps these posts will help you make your decision, then go ahead on over to Kidmin Blog Madness and cast your vote!

Kidmin Blog Madness – We Made It to Round 2 – Now Go Vote!

We did it! Dad in the Middle actually made it through the first round of Kidmin Blog Madness.  Coming out of the Eastern Division as a fifth seed, we squeaked by into the second round with fewer votes than anybody else who progressed past the first round.  Only the top vote getter in each division will move on to the next round.  The competition is stiff, and if I’m being realistic, I don’t see any way Dad in the Middle can make it to final round – which is not to discourage you for voting!  Go HERE now and vote Dad in the Middle.  A win in this round would be akin to Northern Iowa taking out Kansas.

Instead of stumping for votes this week, I thought a better use of this space would be to highlight the other fifteen blogs that made the second round.  I am familiar with all of them as every single one has been featured in the Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol.  A number of them were also featured in:

·        Next Ten Children’s Ministry Blogs (#11-20)

Kidmin Blog Madness – A DAD IN THE MIDDLE Call to Action!

Five days ago, I started a grueling week of shameless self-promotion with this post:  Dad in the Middle Needs YOUR VOTE Today!.  That post encouraged you to vote for DAD IN THE MIDDLE in’s  new  Kidmin Blog Madness Competition.  As of the writing of this post, we were still barely hanging on to the fourth spot in the Eastern Division which (if the results hold out until Sunday) will advance us into the next round for our ultimate annihilation.

So, this post is a call to action!  Head on over to the Kidmin Blog Madness Competition today and vote for DAD IN THE MIDDLE!

This is a trend-setting blog – especially when it comes to self-promotion.  Since our initial post last Sunday, a number of other blogs have jumped on the bandwagon with their own shameless self-promotion.  In order to be true to our loyal followers, I felt like it was my job to take advantage of everyone else’s self-promotion to promote DAD IN THE MIDDLE.  As soon as the posts started to show up, I started hijacking other people’s blogs making comments encouraging people to vote for DAD IN THE MIDDLE – that D-A-D I-N T-H-E M-I-D-D-L-E (5th Seed – Eastern Division).
