I’m Eli. I’m a coach, writer, and dad. Sometimes, all at once.
Sometimes, it’s hard to see the difference! That’s why this blog is called Coach Daddy.
I have some pretty cool friends. And I love when they guest blog around here. My childhood was a collection of embarrassing stories that seemed to fit my future as a blogger. Way before blogs even existed.
I’m also lucky enough to guest post on some cool blogs, too.
Wednesday: Go Ask Daddy. My girls have asked me a trillion questions. I answer them on this day. Five at a time.
Thursday: Guest posts or #GirlsRock interviews. Both have yielded some incredible people. Curation happens on this day, with 6 Words posts, in which I ask friends, strangers, bloggers, and strange blogger friends to chime in on a prompt in exactly six words.
If you email me, or if I wind up on your blog that month, there’s a good chance I’ll ask you for your contribution.
You might also see random smart phone photo posts. It’s good to have a non-crappy phone. Thanks, girls.
Friday: It’s time for gratitude. To keep things real, they’re hashtagged #gratitudeandshit. Come add your things of thanks.
Saturday/Sunday: Curation continues with Weekend Reads. I’ll share a handful of posts for you to check out on other blogs for a little weekend reading action.
This began as a blog about fatherhood and coaching soccer. I’ve found so many similarities. I’ve also discovered ways in which the experiences impact life. And how life can impact fatherhood and coaching.
I’m not much of a winner, but that’s okay with me. It’s allowed me to become a better coach, a better writer, and, hopefully, a better dad.
I write letters, too. Sometimes events move me, and it takes me a while, but I’ll address it. I believe in patience, the power of a comment, and the persistence of being kind and sharing things, even pizza. Well, maybe not pizza.
Consider me a contribution to science, and goodwill worldwide, coming at you three times a week.
Either/or. Thanks for the page hit.
Let me hear from you, too.
