Dad Blogger McGill: 'I am an Endangered Species'

A former Scottish Daily Mirror journalist is reported saying he considers himself to be an 'endangered species' on account of writing a blog about being a dad. 

Craig McGill writes and was extensively featured in yesterday's Scotland on Sunday magazine, Spectrum. He left the Mirror six years ago and is now a social media consultant.

Writes Janet Christie, the rise of blogs about being a dad is modest compared to those about being a mum.

She quotes McGill, as saying: “Blogging has gone mainstream now, but there aren't that many Scots dads doing it. I'm an endangered species. Down south they have one-day events for blogging mums. Anyone trying to plan the dad one has got as far as 'Let's meet in the pub at 5pm'.”
